The new painting and drawing prize SELF,  will be shown as a special section of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters annual exhibition.

SELF aims to explore self-representation in painting and drawing. Free from the constraints of commissioned portraiture, the self-portrait does not seek to flatter the sitter, pay a model, play slave to time and is free to explore character and medium; the artist is at liberty to push the boundaries and experiment.

The winning artist will be presented with a cheque for £20,000.

Browse and purchase a selection of the artworks from the Royal Society of Portrait Painters annual exhibition via the Mall Galleries online exhibition site
