For the first time, the 2015 finalists in the DMNPP and the MCPP will have the opportunity to exhibit at Juniper Hall in Paddington in addition to $1000 in prize money. The winner of this year’s Portrait Prize will be selected by Angus Trumble, the director of the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra and acclaimed artist Rick Amor.
The Photographic Prize winner will be selected by a panel of judges including photographic historian Alan Davies, the former Emeritus Curator of Photographs at the State Library of New South Wales and an international judge yet to be announced.
Entries for both Prizes close on Monday August 31, 2015.
The winners will be announced on Wednesday 28 October at Juniper Hall in Paddington.
