The Women of Outstanding Achievement Photographic Exhibition was an annual event organised by the UKRC.[1] It recognised women within science, engineering and technology (SET). The exhibition was created in 2006. Between six and eight women were chosen each year to be photographed by Robert Taylor.[1] Nominations occur in the Autumn of each year and the recipients were announced at a ceremony in March of the following year.

Many of the portraits from previous years are on permanent loan to institutions such as the University of Oxford, The Royal Society and The Royal Academy of Engineering.[2] The portrait of scientist Nancy Rothwell was purchased by the National Portrait Gallery.[3]

In March 2010 the exhibition opened at The Royal Academy of Engineering. Evan Harris, MP for the Liberal Democrats, unveiled the portraits.[4]
