The New Zealand Portrait Gallery has reopened at COVID-19 Alert Level 2, and the exhibition has been extended to August 9.
The Adam Portraiture Award is a biennial competition for painted portraits of New Zealanders, by New Zealanders and presents a breadth of responses to identity, and representation.
This year, our judges (Karen Quinlan, Director of the National Portrait Gallery of Australia, and Linda Tyler, convenor of Museums and Cultural Heritage at the University of Auckland) selected finalists from a record number of entries, and from these an overall winner and runner-up were chosen.

Exhibition viewers are encouraged to cast a vote for the People’s Choice Award, the winner of which will receive $2,500.
The Adam Portraiture Award would not be possible without the generous support of The Adam Foundation
