New Zealand’s premier portrait prize is back with a record number of entries. The final selection has been whittled down to just fifty-nine. From intimate portraits of family members, to bold depictions of New Zealand’s pop icons, this years award is diverse!

This biennial award is for painted portraits, of New Zealanders, by New Zealanders and presents a breadth of responses to identity, and representation.

Guest Judge Mette Skougaard, Director of The Museum of National History, Frederiksborg Castle, Denmark will speak on February 25 at 12.30pm about the final selection, including her choice for the winner of the $20,000 top prize.

Make sure you too cast your vote. The People’s Choice Award will be announced at the end of the exhibition, and the winner will receive $2,500.

The Adam Portraiture Award would not be possible without the support of The Adam Foundation and their generous sponsorship of our prizes.
