Portrait Salon aims to show the best of the unselected entries from the annual National Portrait Gallery Photographic Portrait Prize, organised annually by the National Portrait Gallery.

Founded in 2011 by photographers Carole Evans and James O Jenkins, Portrait Salon has existed in previous years as a projection at a one-off event. This year, Fuse Art Space will be holding the first ever printed exhibition of the selected images, spanning a cross-section of contemporary portrait photographers from around the world.

Almost 1,000 images from 330 photographers were entered into Portrait Salon 2013, with the final 42 images chosen by the three judges: photographer Abbie Trayler-Smith, Harry Hardie from HERE Press, and Jim Stephenson from Miniclick Talks. The result is a fascinating illustration of the diverse challenges associated with good portraiture.

There will also be a Portrait Salon talk on 15 February at 3pm with founders Carole Evans and James O Jenkins, and several photographers from this year's selection.
