Fancy a challenge? The British Journal of Photography has announced their Portrait of Britain Competition. Closing date is 1st May 2018.
Winners will have their work exhibited on JCDecaux screens nationwide, on bus stops, high streets and in train stations, as part of the biggest exhibition of contemporary portraiture ever held.
Your photograph will be seen by millions of people as they embark on their everyday journeys, brightening up their commutes and embedding your work in their consciousness. This career-changing exposure is unique to the scale of Portrait of Britain, which reaches across the length and breadth of the UK.
The winners have been announced and can now be seen here.
