The winning 100 images will be announced at the end of August in time for the launch of the exhibition, which opens on the 1st September. Each year Portrait of Britain takes place across JCDecaux’s network of digital screens with 100 portraits of the British public displayed in shopping centres and high streets up and down mainland UK.
