Cash Prize
The Ruth Borchard Collection invites all artists to enter the Prize to celebrate the practice of self portraiture. Artists of all backgrounds and from anywhere in the world are invited to enter. Even if this is your first ever self-portrait or artistic creation we welcome your contribution.

The long-listed works will gain international exposure through inclusion in a dedicated online exhibition that will be shared and promoted across major art selling platforms. A selection of works from the long-list will be acquired for the Collection. A shortlist of works will be selected for a curated exhibition at Coventry Cathedral. The exhibition is due to open in May 2021 alongside the opening celebrations of Coventry UK City of Culture.

Entrants whose work is long listed for the Self Portrait Prize exhibition will then be considered for the 10,000 Ruth Borchard Prize, acquisition by the Collection and, for the shortlist of curated works.
