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 stunning and vibrant exhibition features all 50 finalist works for the competition.

This year, the judges are Karen Quinlan, Director of the National Portrait Gallery of Australia, and Linda Tyler, convenor of Museums and Cultural Heritage at the University of Auckland. They have selected finalists from a record number of entries, and from these an overall winner and runner-up will be chosen.

The winner of the Adam Portraiture Award will be announced on February 26, and will receive a $20,000 top prize. Runner-up will receive $2,500.

The exhibition opens to the public on February 27. Visitors to the exhibition 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 support of The Adam Foundation and their generous sponsorship of our prizes.
