The Macquarie Digital Portraiture Award supports artists between the ages of 18 and 30 years working with screen-based technology. A panel of judges selected the six digital portraits on display from an open call for submissions. The works were chosen for their unique and striking explorations of identity. The digital portraits are accompanied by statements written by the artists.

The winner of the Macquarie Digital Portraiture Award for 2014 is Tiyan Melissa Kilie Baker.

With the generous support of Macquarie Group Foundation, the National Portrait Gallery is offering a $10,000 bursary to the artist judged to have made the most outstanding screen-based digital portrait. The artist awarded the Macquarie Digital Portraiture Award for 2014 will also be given the opportunity to undertake an artist residency at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA).

Submissions for the next Macquarie Digital Portraiture Award will open in April 2015. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter or subscribe to receive our emails to get the latest information about next year’s Award.
