The Digital Portraiture Award was established in 2012 to support the growth of digital portraiture, a distinct genre of digital art. Now in its sixth year, nine finalists were selected for exhibition from a large pool of entries.

The winner of the 2017 Award will receive $10,000 and a professional development residency at that hotbed of creativity, The Edge, State Library of Queensland and will be announced at the launch of the exhibition on 1 December.

The Digital Portraiture Award 2017 will be on display at the National Portrait Gallery from 1 December 2017 – 18 February 2018.
