The Doug Moran National Portrait Prize is Australia’s richest art prize with the winner receiving $150,000 and the Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize winner receiving $50,000.

The Doug Moran National Portrait Prize (DMNPP) invites entries of original works from Australian artists, capturing Australians from all walks of life, whether a public figure or someone from their own circle of experience. The winner of this year’s Portrait Prize will be selected by renowned artist Anne Wallace and Art Historian and Gallery Director Doug Hall.

The Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize (MCPP) celebrates and promotes Australian contemporary photography. Australia’s most generous photography award invites entries that interpret ‘Contemporary Life in Australia’ with an emphasis on day-to-day life. The Prize is open to Australian photographers of all ages, with special awards for students and their schools. This year the Photographic Prize winner will be selected by a panel of judges including photographic historian Alan Davies, the former Emeritus Curator of Photographs at the State Library of New South Wales and Jon Jones, Director of Photography at the Sunday Times Magazine in the UK.

Entries for 2016 close on Wednesday 31 August and the winners will be announced on Wednesday 26 October at Juniper Hall in Paddington.
