New Zealand’s premier portrait prize is back.
This biennial award is for painted portraits, of New Zealanders, by New Zealanders and presents a breadth of responses to identity, and representation.
This year's Guest Judge is Angus Trumble, Director of the National Portrait Gallert of Australia.
The winner of the Adam Portraiture Award will receive a $20,000 top prize.
