Devonport Regional Gallery




RACT Insurance Tasmanian Portrait Prize


23 November 2019 – 19 January 2020

The prize, which started in 2008, is open to artists 30 years old and under, across many disciplines, with past award recipients working in mixed media, print, photography, painting, video and drawing. The objective of the award is to foster the development of emerging Tasmanian artists and provide an opportunity for the public to appreciate their talents. As well as an opportunity to exhibit their works in a professional exhibition in a state-wide tour, the award offers a monetary incentive to assist the artist in their endeavours.
