Celebrating 30 Years

The Doug Moran National Portrait Prize is Australia's richest art prize and has seen many of Australia's most prominent artists included in its ranks.

In 1988, the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize was established by Doug and Greta Moran and family to foster and encourage Australian portraiture.

The Doug Moran National Portrait Prize has grown to become one of this country's most prestigious art prizes with the largest prize money of any art competition in Australia.
