1233 ABC Newcastle Portrait Prize


The 1233 Portrait Prize continues to gain momentum with photographers tying for the recognition and great prizes. This year the final top 10 entries and a Listeners' Choice will be displayed once more at the gallery. Entrants were invited to take a portrai photograph with a local Hunter connection and describe what they had discovered about the subject of their portait in 100 words or less. The major prize winner will receive a trip to the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra. With the event attracting over 200 entries this year, the competition promises to be lively and the judges' job challenging! Come along for the announcement festivities at a live broadcaset from 3pm 17 July.
