The Hurford Hardwood Portrait Prize is a biennial prize. Now in its 6th year the prize started as The Northern Rivers Portrait Prize, a painting and drawing prize open to artists Australia wide whose artwork depicted a person from the Northern Rivers. It has since expanded to include portraits of any subject in any medium.

Entries will be judged by Dr Michael Brand, Director, Art Gallery of NSW and the winner will receive a $10,000 acquisitive prize.

The 2018 Hurford Hardwood Portrait Prize exhibition will be open 28 July – 23 September 2018.

Entries close Monday 11 June 2018.

The prize is open to artists nationally.
