In its debut year, Portrait of Britain was launched by The British Journal of Photography to critical acclaim. Showcasing the face of a modern country, the images, in partnership with JCDecaux, were displayed on digital screens across the country.
Attracted approximately 4000 entries, the final 100 images were a mixture of amateurs and professionals alike.
The exhibition was featured in many media outlets both in the UK and overseas. The Times, Independent, Mashable, Buzzfeed, BBC and MSN all featured the images, as well as TIME in the US and Rolling Stone in Italy.
