High profile, eagerly anticipated and often controversial, the Art Gallery of New South Wales' Archibald Prize is Australia's favourite art award, and one of its most prestigious. Awarded to the best portrait painting, it's a who's who of Australian culture, with subjects often including politicians, celebrities, sporting heroes, authors and artists.

43 portraits are exhibited in this year's exhibition including 2017 Archibald Prize winner Mitch Cairns for his portrait of partner and artist Agatha Gothe-Snape and the Packing Room Prize winner Peter Smeeth for his portrait of Lisa Wilkinson AM.
