Series 3

Tuesdays 8.30pm Channel 020

Amateur and professional artists from all over the nation are invited to submit their self-portraits. From thousands of applications, nine artists per episode are chosen to paint the portraits of famous sitters - anyone from TV and film stars to athletes, politicians and authors.

The talented contestants face against-the-clock challenges and at the end of each episode, the judges decide on the best portrait. The famous sitter also picks their favourite painting to keep.

The winner of each episode will go on to compete in the semi-finals and if successful – the final. The series winner earns a commission to paint a famous person for the permanent collection of a national art gallery. With painters specialising in a wide range of media, the quality of portraiture is truly outstanding. Who has got what it takes to become Portrait Artist Of The Year?
