Photo Gallery: Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2010

A selection of some of the striking images that caught the eye of the judges

'A diverse photographic prize where the standard is exceptionally high': Merel by Clare Shilland© Clare Shilland

The winner of the National Portrait Gallery’s Taylor Wessing Prize was announced yesterday, and as with most prizes you know there must be an element of compromise when it comes to selecting the shortlist. David Chancellor’s winning portrait of a 14-year-old game hunter from Alabama, mounted on a horse with a dead buck draped across its neck (2), is certainly striking. So too, are the second and third prize-winners - the second, Portrait of My British Wife by Panayiotis Lamprou (9), doubly so, since it reveals more than one might expect to see in the context of this annual award.
