Portrait of Britain is an annual photography exhibition showcasing the best portraits taken by people throughout the country. The winning photographs, selected from BJP‘s open-call competition, are displayed on digital billboard screens nationwide – in train stations, airports, shopping centres and on high streets – and are seen by over 10 million people.

Now in its third year, the exhibition will re-launch on 1 September 2018 for one month but for the first time with this book. Portrait of Britain is a small, chunky hardback featuring 200 shortlisted portraits alongside information about each image and selected quotes from the photographers. Together these photographs celebrate the richness and diversity of a vibrant nation at a time of pivotal change.
