Time to start finding subjects and painting faces. Entries for the 2018 Adam Portraiture Award are now open. The New Zealand Portrait Gallery runs the award and are now encouraging artists to prepare for next year’s significant competition.
The Adam Portraiture Award is New Zealand’s most prestigious portraiture competition which boasts a major cash prize of $20,000 and attracts national recognition. The award is generously sponsored by the Adam Foundation and is one of the country’s longest running art prizes.
The winner of the competition and recipient of a $20,000 cash prize will be selected by international Judge Angus Trumble, Director of the National Portrait Gallery of Australia, Canberra. An additional prize of $2,500 will be awarded for the runner up alongside another $2,500 prize for the People’s Choice, awarded at the end of the Adam Award exhibition.
