The portrait should be of a person who is special to you – someone who is known to you and plays a significant role in your life.

The competition will be judged by artist Ben Quilty, Archibald Prize winner in 2011 and now a Gallery trustee, and Victoria Collings, the Gallery’s senior coordinator of education and family programs, based on merit and originality.

Five finalists from each category will be exhibited at the Gallery and on the Gallery website. One winner will be chosen in each category.

Each finalist will receive an art pack from Faber-Castell, ANZ money box and Archibald 14 catalogue.

Each winner will receive a $100 ANZ Visa Debit card, an art hamper from Faber-Castell and a family pass to the upcoming Pop to popism exhibition at the Gallery as well as an ANZ money box and Archibald 14 catalogue.
