The winner of the National Photographic Portrait Prize for 2011 was Miss Alesandra by Jacqueline Mitelman.
The judges selected 55 portraits for the National Photographic Portrait Prize 2011.
Judge Louise Doyle commented that ‘What kept coming up in these portraits was the very personal relationships between sitter and photographer that hadn’t been as apparent in previous prize exhibitions. Whether it be a parent to child or partner to partner relationship, or very close friends, it seemed to me that these images were expressing an intimacy that reflects how we see ourselves and those close to us; a celebration of connectedness.‘
