Who's Who Portrait Prize
Entries close Friday 26 August, 5pm
Australia’s renowned Archibald Prize for portraiture was established with a bequest from Jules Francois Archibald, co-founder and editor of the iconic Bulletin. Marking Archibald’s connection to Geelong (he was born in Geelong West in 1856), the Who’s who portrait prize aims to inspire young artists to celebrate local or regional identities, their personal histories and achievements through portraiture.
The prize attracts hundreds of entries from students across the region and features portraits of local heroes from sporting identities and community leaders to teachers and family members. Selected entries will be exhibited in the Geelong Gallery from 17 September – 9 October, with more published in the Geelong Advertiser during the exhibition.
