Now in its 11th year, the Black Swan Prize for Portraiture is one of Australia’s richest portraiture prizes, featuring the $50,000 First Prize donated by The Lester Group, $10,000 Tony Fini Foundation Artist Prize, and $7,500 People’s Choice Prize donated by the Baldock family.

A strong diversity of styles is once again showcased in this year’s selection, from photographic realism to abstractionism.

Self-portraits and studies of family members sit alongside high-profile subjects including cricketer Nathan Lyon, Academy Award-winning animator Adam Elliot, and performance artist Stelarc.

The exhibition opens on 1 November with a range of events planned.


The Major Awards Night celebration is Friday 10 November with $40 tickets on sale in October.
