Hurford Hardwood Portrait Prize
The Hurford Hardwood Portrait Prize is a biennial prize and a continuation of the Northern Rivers Portrait Prize. The 2017 Hurford Hardwood Portrait Prize has had to be postponed to 2018 due to Lismore Regional Gallery’s upcoming relocation to its new facility at 110 Magellan Street, Lismore (more info). Accounting for this change of date, portraits will be accepted if they have been completed onward from December 2015.
Portraits can be of any subject (provided the sitter has agreed to the portrait) and in any media (with the exception of photography). Works must not exceed 1.5 metres in any direction.
Previous winner of the prize include:
blue mountains noah (subject: Noah Taylor)
Jenny London (subject: Jenny London)
Other Side of Midnight (subject: self-portrait)
Letter to Barb (subject: Judith Terkelsen OAM)
You look so beautiful when you’re sleeping (subject: Dean Greguric)
