2021 marks the 6th year of our partnership with the British Journal of Photography, something that we are very proud of as a business as it not only transforms our screens into a nationwide exhibition but it perfectly showcases the power of the public screen by celebrating the diversity of modern Britain.
Portrait of Britain has the unique ability to capture a moment in time, reflect society and celebrate the many faces of our communities by bringing 100 winning portraits to our screens across the UK. From ballerinas and Black Lives Matter protestors to carers and karate teams — last year's edition of Portrait of Britain sewed a rich tapestry of our nation’s people in all their vigour and diversity. Have a look below at some of the winning images that did just that.
This year’s exhibition will be asking: what does it mean to be British today? Show us quiet, everyday moments and landmark events; dynamic urban faces and eccentric countryside characters; traditional portraiture and more innovative techniques. Show us your Portrait of Britain.

The deadline for entries is the end of September 2021. The exhibition will launch on our nationwide network of digital Out-of-Home screens in the new year, displaying the 100 winning images throughout January in rail stations and shopping malls, on high streets and digital bus shelter screens, and beyond.
