The National Portrait Gallery, London's annual photographic portrait prize was established in 2003 as the Schweppes Photographic Portrait Prize. In the years 2006 and 2007 it was referred to simply as the Photographic Portrait Prize, while from 2008 new sponsors have resulted in the name Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize.[1] having done so since 2008. Taylor Wessing's relationship with the Gallery began in 2005 with their sponsorship of The World’s Most Photographed.[1]

The prize is an open competition accepting submissions from amateur and professional photographers from anywhere. From about 6,000 submissions,[2] 60 photographs are selected for exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery between November and February. A shortlist of usually four photographers receives prizes which in 2012 were: £12,000 for first; £3,000 for second; £2,000 for third; and £1,000 for fourth.[3] The competition is judged by a panel chaired by the Director of the National Portrait Gallery. In addition, there is an independently sponsored prize for a specific category, usually young photographers.
