It is New Zealand’s most prestigious portraiture competition which boasts a major cash prize of $20,000 and attracts national recognition. The award is generously sponsored by the Adam Foundation and is one of the country’s longest running art prizes.

This year’s international judge is Angus Trumble, Director of the National Portrait Gallery of Australia.

He was the second prize winner in the 2016 Adam Portrait Award. His first exhibition was in 2015, at the age of 17. At 21 he is the youngest person in the 20-year history of the award to win first prize.
