Darling Portrait Prize

Daily from Friday 6 March 2020 until Sunday 10 May 2020

The National Portrait Gallery’s Darling Portrait Prize aspires to be the most prestigious portrait painting prize in the country, held at the home of Australian portraiture. Finalists included in the exhibition will be announced in early March. The winner of the annual Darling Portrait Prize will receive a cash prize of $75,000.

‘The Prize will recognise the significance and relevance of portraiture in Australia and will be an ongoing legacy of Mr L Gordon Darling AC CMG (1921-2015). 2018 marks twenty years since the Portrait Gallery was established, an achievement that would not have been possible without the unwavering dedication of our Founding Patrons Mr L Gordon Darling AC CMG and Mrs Marilyn Darling AC.’
- Chairman of the National Portrait Gallery, Dr Helen Nugent AO
