For the past 28 years, the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize (DMNPP) has encouraged excellence and creativity in contemporary Australian portraiture by asking artists to interpret the look and personality of a chosen sitter, either unknown or well-known.

Founded by Doug and Greta Moran and family in 1988, the Prize is an important part of Australia’s arts calendar with a first prize of $150,000. This exhibition includes the top thirty works selected by nominated judges for the 2016 Prize.
