2014 Shirley Hannan National Portrait Award

Prize purse:

Bega Valley Regional Gallery is one of the smallest galleries in Australia, yet it proudly hosts one of Australia’s best loved and richest portrait prizes, every year.

The Shirley Hannan National Portrait Award is the coveted award, boasting a first prize of $50,000.

This biennial event, proudly sponsored by the Shirley Hannan Trust, is a celebration of realistic portraiture and attracts eminent practitioners from across Australia.

The spiritual home of the Shirley Hannan is the Bega Valley Regional Gallery which, as a small cultural outpost in a relatively remote country town, is particularly proud to host such a significant and exciting event.

Entries are due May 2nd 2014. Entry form and information can be found on the Bega Valley Shire website.
