Zurich Portrait Prize
The aim of the Zurich Portrait Prize is to showcase and encourage interest in contemporary portraiture, and to raise the profile of the long-standing and constantly evolving National Portrait Collection at the National Gallery of Ireland.
The annual competition is open to artists living on the island of Ireland, and Irish artists living abroad. The winner will receive a cash prize of €15,000, and a commission worth €5,000 to create a work for inclusion in the National Portrait Collection. There will also be two awards of €1,500 for highly commended works.
A shortlist of portraits will be chosen by the 2020 judging panel and exhibited at the National Gallery of Ireland from 21 November 2020 to 21 March 2021. The exhibition will then travel to our partner venue, Crawford Art Gallery, Cork.
