Archibald Prize Exhibition

An Art Gallery of New South Wales touring exhibition.

The Archibald Prize is awarded annually to the best portrait ‘preferentially of some man or woman distinguished in art, letters, science or politics, painted by any artist resident in Australasia’.

The annual Archibald Prize is eagerly anticipated by artists and audiences alike.

Prestigious and controversial, the Archibald Prize is Australia’s foremost portraiture prize. Over the years it has become a who’s who of Australian culture – from politicians to celebrities, sporting heroes to artists.

First awarded in 1921, it is judged by the trustees of the Art Gallery of NSW and awarded to the best portrait painting. The Archibald Prize awards AUD100,000 prize money for the winning artist.
