The Ruth Borchard Self-Portrait Competition is intended to reflect and celebrate the traditions which inform the Borchard Collection by encouraging the development of these ideas into British art of the twenty-first century.
Entrants must submit a self-portrait, but this concept is open to an interpretation that goes beyond passport-photo conventionality. Shown alone or within a group, contextualised, abstracted, trailing narrative or defined by the surface of the image, like all self-portraits, these new additions to the genre will explore the idea of visual identity, revealing and designing it at the same time.
The Competition is sponsored by the Borchard Family in association with Parabola Land and Piano Nobile Gallery.
The 2013 competition is now open
