The annual Archibald Prize is eagerly anticipated by artists and audiences alike.

Prestigious and controversial, the Archibald Prize is Australia’s foremost portraiture prize. Over the years it has become a who’s who of Australian culture – from politicians to celebrities, sporting heroes to artists.

First awarded in 1921, it judged by the trustees of the Art Gallery of NSW and awarded to the best portrait painting. The Archibald Prize awards $100,000 prize money for the winning artist.
