The winner of BT Portrait award
Glasgow-born painter Paul Emsley's winning portrait of fellow artist Michael Simpson will be one of a number of pictures on show at the BP Portrait Award Exhibition in Edinburgh.

Taking place at the National Portrait Gallery, it is the second time the prestigious exhibition has been held in the capital.

With the main winner receiving 25,000, as well as a commission which is worth 4,000, the BP Portrait Awards are among the most prestigious awards for the visual arts in the world.

The annual exhibition is aimed at encouraging artists to focus on and develop the theme of portraiture in their work and is open to everyone aged 18 and over.

This year a record 1,870 artists submitted their work and the exhibition, which featured 60 paintings, was seen by more than 195,000 people in London alone.

Recent winners include Stuart Pearson Wright in 2001 for his painting of JK Rowling.
