The Doug Moran National Portrait Prize was established in 1988 to celebrate Australia’s bi-centenary. Since then it has grown to become one of this country’s most prestigious art prizes with the largest prize money of any art competition in Australia. The prize attracts not only the cream of Australian portraiture artists but encourages artists at all stages of their careers to enter. The Prize has attracted highly distinguished judges both local and international and in 2016 the judges were art historian Doug Hall, artist Anne Wallace and Greta Moran.
