Portrait Salon was founded by Carole Evans and James O Jenkins in 2011 as a response to the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize. A form of Salon des Refusés – an exhibition of works rejected from a juried art show – it aims to showcase the best of the rejected images from the Taylor Wessing Prize, which is organised annually by the National Portrait Gallery in London. They also called for submissions of rejected work from the British Journal of Photography’s Portrait of Britain competition.

Portrait Salon exists to question the place of competitions within the photographic industry and to provide another opportunity and platform for photographers.
