The winner of the National Photographic Portrait Prize for 2010 was Zareth by Scott Bycroft.

The judges selected 43 portraits for the National Photographic Portrait Prize 2010.

Of the winning work, Dr Chapman said, ‘Bycroft’s work was selected for its immediacy and power, its distinctiveness as a portrait, and for its direct presence. The subject, Zareth Long, projects an uncompromising gaze, drawing us physically closer, to then explore the razor-sharp photographic depiction. Every detail is so clear and finely realised, creating an unquestionably compelling portrait that is a strong and positive representation of youth‘.

JUDGES: Dr Christopher Chapman, Curator, National Portrait Gallery; Joanna Gilmour, Assistant Curator, National Portrait Gallery; Kim Machan, guest judge, Director Multimedia Art Asia Pacific.
