In 1982/3 he was the artist in residence at the National Gallery, London; 2005 first prize, Royal West of England Open, Bristol; 2007 Honorary Fellow of University College, Falmouth.

Michael Porter's work was included in the Royal West of England Academy’s “Power of the Sea” exhibition 5 April – 6 July 2014 featuring internationally known contemporary artists alongside historical works from national art collections.

Porter is represented in national and international, public and corporate collections.
