Easels at the ready! A new selection of talented artists, chosen from thousands of entrants, will compete in the nation’s favourite art competition, Portrait Artist of the Year.
Back for a ninth series with much-loved hosts Stephen Mangan and Joan Bakewell, we’ll see a brand-new batch of amateur and professional artists battle it out to impress expert judges Tai Shan Schierenberg, Kathleen Soriano and Kate Bryan.
And Portrait Artist of the Year would not be complete without an impressive and diverse mix of famous and celebrated subjects from the worlds of stage, screen, literature, sport and politics.
Portrait Artist of the Year is coming soon.
