was established in 2011 as a form of Salon des Refusés – simply an exhibition of works rejected from a juried art show, in this case the National Portrait Gallery Photographic Portrait Prize (NPGPPP). This is a fringe way of showcasing artists’ work that may otherwise go unseen with the aim to show the best of the unselected entries. With over six thousand rejected entries from the NPGPPP there are numerous outstanding portraits which deserve to be seen.
