The prize, which started in 2008, is open to artists across many disciplines, with past award recipients working in mixed media, print, photography, painting, video and drawing.

Tasmania’s premier portrait award is a major commitment from RACT to young and emerging Tasmanian artists. The objective of the award is to foster the development of emerging Tasmanian artists and provide an opportunity for the public to appreciate their talents.

Entrants are invited to produce a portrait of a living Tasmanian who is important to them. They must also provide an artist statement describing the inspiration and meaning behind the artwork.
