The Adam Portraiture Award highlights the power of portraiture and celebrates New Zealanders and the portrait painters who represent them.

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.

 

The winner for 2018..

Third time finalist, Logan Moffat, has won this most prestigious portraiture prize with a large-scale double portrait.  Moffat is an Auckland based artist, completing his BFA Honours degree at Elam School of Fine Arts last year. 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.
