National Photographic Portrait Prize 2024

We are excited to announce that entries to the 2024 National Photographic Portrait Prize are now open.

Entering its 17th year, the National Photographic Portrait Prize (NPPP) is one of the Gallery’s most popular annual events. The prize provides a powerful visual record of the year that was – a celebration of identity, both collective and individual.

In 2024, the winner will receive a prize of $30,000. All finalist artworks will also be exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery from 22 June to 13 October 2024. The Gallery is committed to supporting artists, so each selected finalist will receive:

  • an artist fee of $1,200 to exhibit your work at the Gallery
  • an additional artist fee of $700 if your work is included in the NPPP 2024 National Tour
  • a copyright and image licensing fee of $1,000
  • domestic artwork freight allowance to and from the Gallery
  • domestic travel allowance and accommodation in Canberra for the exhibition launch.

To be eligible to enter the 2024 NPPP, your work must be:

  • a photographic artwork
  • taken after 2 February 2023
  • depicting a person or persons, from a live sitting (Zoom’s okay too)
  • entirely your own intellectual property.

To enter, artists must be:

  • an Australian citizen or a resident of Australia at the time of your online entry
  • 18 years or over at the time of your online entry.

This year, we are pleased to announce that it is now free to enter the Prize.

Entries close at 11:55pm AEDT on Wednesday 7 February 2024.
