Doug Moran National Portrait Prize 2012: Finalist

Natasha Bieniek

20 Jul - 8 Aug 2012

The Doug Moran National Portrait Prize is an annual Australian portrait prize founded by Doug Moran in 1988. It is the richest portrait prize in the world with A$150,000 awarded to the winner and A$10,000 awarded to the runner-up.

The aim of the competition is to promote contemporary Australian portraiture and, as such, entry conditions stipulate that both the artist and their subject be an Australian citizen or resident for at least one year prior to the closing date for entries, however it is not required that the artist or the subject be well known.

Natasha Bieniek was named the 2012 runner-up of the Prize.
