FIRST WALES PORTRAIT AWARD
The Wales Portrait Award is a major new biennale celebrating the art of portrait painting and a total of £30,000 in prize-money has been awarded. The judging panel has been led by Sandy Nairne, Director, National Portrait Gallery, and the exhibition features 55 paintings chosen from UK-wide and International submissions. Little has been done to encourage portraiture in Wales since the late 19th century and this award is designed to redeem this gap in provision and to restore this important art form to its rightful place in a modern Wales. This was an inclusive initiative encouraging entries of original paintings from artists of any age living, working or
born in Wales or any artist who portrayed a Welsh subject.
