Who’s who portrait prize—a virtual exhibition
This annual exhibition of the work of local students honours Jules Francois Archibald, after whom the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ famous portrait prize is named, and his very special connection to Geelong as his birthplace.
The Who’s who portrait prize aims to encourage and inspire young artists to celebrate local or regional identities, their personal histories and achievements through portraiture.
Congratulations to the 2020 award winners, Ned D, Prep, Herne Hill Primary School, Indira H, Level 2, Herne Hill Primary School, Tom G, Level 5, Little Light Academy Homeschool, Johanna K, Level 7, Kardinia International College and Was F, Year 10, Barwon Valley School.
