The BP Portrait Award is the most prestigious portrait painting competition in the world.

The award is aimed at encouraging artists of all ages to focus upon and develop the theme of portraiture in their work and this year’s exhibition has 48 exceptional entries.

The winning entry, by London-based artist Miriam Escofet, is An Angel at my Table, a portrait of the artist’s mother drinking tea. The portrait was selected from 2,667 entries from 88 countries, submitted for judging anonymously by a panel which included journalist Rosie Millard and artist Glenn Brown.
