Fading Portrait (2022) is being exhibited across three online platforms, as one of the highly distinguished entries to the Self-Portrait Prize 2023 — a biannual award celebrating contemporary self-portraiture, from the Ruth Borchard Collection and Piano Nobile.

From the 23 June — 31 December 2023 an online exhibition of highly distinguished entries will go on public display. It will also be shared via the Ruth Borchard Collection Artsy page and Vortic platform.

The judges include Gabriele Finaldi (Director of the National Gallery), Melanie Gerlis (Financial Times Art Market Columnist), Andrea Rose (former Director of the British Council), Stephen Whittle (Principal Manager The Atkinson Museum), Lucy Jones (2021 Prize Winner) and David Borchard (grandson of Ruth Borchard).

From thousands of submissions, 250 artists have been invited to participate in an exclusive online selling exhibition. Shared and promoted via an exclusive Ruth Borchard Collection virtual gallery and Artsy online viewing room this gives artists the opportunity to have their work seen by international collectors.

Alongside the winning artwork a curated selection of distinguished and shortlisted artworks will be exhibited at The Atkinson Museum, Southport, from September - December 2023. The exhibition will coincide with the Liverpool Arts Biennial.
