While the Producer fully intends to stage the Heats on the dates outlined above, the Producer reserves the right to alter the dates above if necessary for the needs of production.
The Producer also reserves the right to add further Heats and/or remove Heats.
- A panel of Judges will review the Self Portrait Entry(s) and the Additional Works of Art from all the valid Competition entries and select the artists who will be invited to attend one of the Heats.
- The Producer will notify successful and non-successful entrants (“Shortlisted Artists”) on or shortly following 11th March 2019 or such other date as the Producer at its absolute discretion shall elect (“the Notification Date”), and will on the Notification Date (or soon after, at the Producer’s discretion) confirm the dates and locations and times for each of the Shortlisted Artists will be required for the Heat the Shortlisted Artist is invited to attend, and will request verification of their eligibility to enter the Competition. Shortlisted Artists will be required to supply high-resolution quality images of their Self Portrait Entry for marketing and publicity purposes. If you are a Shortlisted Artist, You will be given the opportunity to specify which date You would prefer but it may not always be possible to accommodate Your preference and the Producer reserves the right to invite You to any of the dates.
- The Producer may (but shall be under no obligation) to invite you to be a ‘reserve’ Shortlisted Artist (“the Reserve Shortlisted Artists”). The Reserve Shortlisted Artists are a number of standby artists that may take the place of a Shortlisted Artist if they are no longer able to take part. Each heat will have its own number of Reserve Shortlisted Artists and which Reserve Shortlisted Artist is selected to fill any opening is at the sole discretion of the Producer. Reserve Shortlisted Artists could be called upon up any time from the day of agreement to be a Reserve Shortlisted Artist to the morning of a Heat. If You are invited to attend that Heat on the possibility of being selected as a Shortlisted Artist on that day, You may not be the only Reserve Shortlisted Artist to attend that Heat on that basis, and the Producer shall have absolute discretion as to which Reserve Shortlisted Artist to select as a Shortlisted Artist, and shall have also the discretion to not invite any Reserve Shortlisted Artist to be a Shortlisted Artist, regardless of circumstances.
- If You are chosen as a Shortlisted Artist (or as a Reserve Shortlisted Artist and asked to attend any particular Heat), You will be required to bring Your original Self Portrait Entry and possibly Additional Works of Art (the images of which were submitted by you for entry into the Competition) to (and potentially from) the Heat. Paintings must be unframed, and substitutes cannot be accepted. Your original Self Portrait Entry and Additional Works of Art, on request, must be given to the Producer on loan to the Producer until the all episodes of the Series have been first broadcast by Sky or any further Exhibition (as defined at paragraph 35 below) if Your Self Portrait Entry and Additional Works of Art are selected for the Exhibition. If Your original Self Portrait Entry and Additional Works of Art are not available when required, the Producer reserves the right to disqualify You.
- During each Heat, the Shortlisted Artists will be asked to produce an artwork depicting a Portrait of a Sitter allocated by the Producer (“the Heat Artwork”). The Producer may ask all of the Shortlisted Artists in each Heat to depict the same Sitter, or the Shortlisted Artists may be divided into groups to paint the same Sitter per group, or each Shortlisted Artist may be required to depict a different Sitter. All of those choices shall be at the absolute discretion of the Producer, and may be different configurations in different Heats, and in all cases, those choices may or may not be told to the Shortlisted Artists in each Heat in advance.
- The Shortlisted Artists will have a maximum of 4 hours over a 6 hour period (or such other period as the Producer at its discretion may determine) to complete their Heat Artwork. The Shortlisted Artists will be then be judged on the results produced at the end of this period, whether they consider their artwork to be finished or not. The panel of Judges will then choose a winner from each Heat (the “Semi-Finalists”) at the end of the day. The panel of Judges may take the Shortlisted Artists’ Portrait Entry(s) and their Additional Works of Art into consideration during this judging process, and all of the criteria for judging and the decisions of the Judges shall be at the discretion of the Judges and the Producer and shall not be not open to dispute or discussion.
- At each Heat, The Sitter will (or may not, at the Producer’s discretion) be invited to choose and keep their favourite Portrait of themselves from each Heat. If Your Heat Artwork is chosen, Your Heat Artwork will be gifted to that Sitter. If Your Heat Artwork was chosen by The Sitter, The Sitter may (or may not) agree to loan Your Heat Artwork to the Producer for the purposes of the Exhibition.
The Competition: The Semi Finals
- The Semi Finalists will consist of the winners of each of the Heats. All Semi-Finalists shall be on an equal basis with an equal chance of reaching and winning the Final.
- The Semi Final is intended to take place at a London location on Tuesday 30th April 2019 (“the Semi Final Date”). While the Producer intends to film and hold the Semi Final on this date and at a London location, the Producer reserves the right to change dates and locations at its discretion.
- The Semi-Finalists will each be asked to produce a Portrait over a maximum 4 hours over a 6 hour period (or such other period as the Producer at its discretion may determine) on the Semi Final Date (“the Semi-Final Artwork”). The Producer may ask all of the Semi Finalists to depict the same Sitter, or the Semi Finalists may be divided into groups to paint the same Sitter per group, or each Semi Finalist may be required to depict different Sitters. All of those choices shall be at the absolute discretion of the Producer, and those choices may or may not be told to the Semi Finalists in advance of the Semi Final Date. The panel of Judges will choose up to three Semi Finalists for the Final (the “Finalists”) at the end of the day. The panel of Judges may take the Semi-Finalists previous work in the Competition into consideration during this judging process, and all of the criteria for judging and the decisions of the Judges shall be at the discretion of the Judges and the Producer and shall not be not open to dispute or discussion.
The Competition: The Final
- The Finalists will be asked to complete a further two Portraits (“the Final Artworks”):
- The first of Final Artworks will be artwork of a Sitter chosen by the Producer to be produced within a 2 week period (or such other period as the Producer at its discretion may determine) The dates and times that the Finalists shall be given to complete the first of the Final Artworks shall be determined by the Producer, and may be within a set time period on a single day or over a number of days, and the Producer may film any or all of this process.
- The second of the Final Artworks is intended to be an artwork created and filmed at a location in London (“the Final Location”) on Tuesday 28th May 2019 (“the Final Date”) although the Producer reserves the right to nominate a different Final Location and Final Date. The Producer may ask all of the Finalists to depict the same Portrait of a Sitter at the Final Location, or each Finalist may be required to depict different Sitters at the Final Location. Those choices shall be at the absolute discretion of the Producer, and those choices may or may not be told to the Finalists in advance of the Final Date. The exact time to be given to the Finalists to complete the second of the Final Artworks on the Final Date will be determined by the Producer in all circumstances.
- The Judges will review the Final Artworks during and at the end of the Final Date and select an overall Winner (“the Winner”). The Winner will be announced in a filmed programme to be recorded at the Final Location on the Final Date, but the Producer reserves the right to announce the Winner at a later date and at a different location, and if you are a Finalist, you will be required to attend such different location on such different date. The panel of Judges may take the Finalists previous work in the Competition into consideration during this judging process, and all of the criteria for judging and the decisions of the Judges shall be at the discretion of the Judges and the Producer and shall not be not open to dispute or discussion.
- Your Final Artworks may be offered to the Sitter and if offered, Your Final Artworks shall be gifted to the Sitter. If Your Final Artworks were gifted to the Sitter, the Sitter may (or may not) agree to loan Your Final Artworks to the Producer for the purposes of The Exhibition.

While the Producer will work with You to find mutually agreeable dates, You agree to make Yourself available on date(s) to be provided.
- The Winner’s Prize cannot be exchanged by You or transferred by You and cannot be redeemed by You for any other prize. The Winner’s Prize may generally be amended and/or supplemented at the Producer’s discretion, and if you are the Winner, You acknowledge that the Winner’s Prize shall be as it is in its final form as advised by the Producer. If the Winner rejects the Winner’s Prize or otherwise fails to carry out the creation of the Winner’s Prize Artwork on such dates and times and locations required by the Producer, then the Producer reserves the right to take the Winner’s Prize away from the Winner and the Producer shall be entitled to select another Winner.
