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.
Due to the temporary closure of Geelong Gallery, the Who’s who portrait prize will be presented online in 2020. The winning entries will also be displayed in the Geelong Advertiser on Friday 21 August.
