Following an open call by British Journal of Photography earlier this year, the panel of judges had the task of selecting 200 shortlisted images to be featured in the Portrait of Britain Book Vol.2, published by Hoxton Mini Press (released on 5 September 2019), and from this selection, 100 winning images were chosen to be displayed on JCDecaux screens nationwide.

The exhibition launches on 2 September 2019 on digital screens in airports, shopping malls and many other places across the UK.

"Once again the range of images reflects the diversity of modern Britain, with photographs ranging from Max Miechowski’s portrait of a young couple salsa dancing in Burgess Park in London, to Shaun Ryder glaring at the camera for his portrait by Theo McInnes. Some are chance encounters, some are staged for the camera, but each stands out for its unique portrayal of the British people. Some, like Sirli Raitma’s portrait of her mother, serve another purpose still. After she moved to London, widowed and suffering from epilepsy, Raitma started taking pictures of her mother to help combat her depression," says the British Journal of Photography.

This year's Portrait of Britain has been judged by:

  • Shannon Ghannam (Global Education Director, Magnum Photos)
  • Shoair Mavlian (Director, Photoworks)
  • Simon Bainbridge (Editorial Director, British Journal of Photography)
  • Sunil Gupta (Photographer)
  • Martin Usbourne (Co-Founder, Hoxton Mini Press)
