PHOTOGRAPHERS have until November 18 to submit entries to the National Portrait Gallery’s National Photographic Portrait Prize 2014.

An annual event intended to promote excellence in contemporary photographic portraiture, the prize of $25,000 has in the past gone to both professional and aspiring Australian photographers.

This is the seventh year that the Prize has been awarded and the judges will be looking for entries that reflect the “distinctive vision of Australia’s aspiring and professional portrait photographers and the unique nature of their subjects”.

Finalists will be announced in early December and the winner will be selected in mid-March 2014. After hanging  at the National Portrait Gallery from March 21 to June 1 next year  the exhibition prize  will tour to Wagga Wagga Art Gallery,  Cowra Regional Art Gallery,  Wangaratta Art Gallery and Devonport Regional Gallery.

Would-be finalists have until midnight (EST) on November 18 to submit entries. Inquiries to or  6102 7069.
