The Adam Portraiture Award is New Zealand’s premier portraiture prize. Supported by the Adam Foundation this biennial award highlights the power of portraiture and celebrates New Zealanders and the portrait painters who depict them.

This touring exhibition showcases the 38 of the 45 artworks that were shortlisted from hundreds of entries by judges, Wellington-based painter Karl Maughan, and Linda Tyler, convenor of Museums and Cultural Heritage at the University of Auckland.

The winning artist receives $20,000 and the winning artwork becomes part of the New Zealand Portrait Gallery’s permanent collection. The Second Prize winner and People’s Choice Award winner each receive $2,500.

Percy Thomson Gallery will be the only stop in Taranaki for this nationwide touring exhibition.
