The Digital Portraiture Award was established in 2012 to support the growth of digital portraiture, a distinct genre of digital art. In 2016 seven finalists were selected from over 270 entries; our largest number of entries yet!
After much deliberation, the judges have decided that the winner of the 2016 Digital Portraiture Award is Amiel Courtin-Wilson for his poignant portrait of Charles. Amiel received $10,000 and a professional development residency at that hotbed of creativity, The Edge, State Library of Queensland.
The exhibition was displayed at the National Portrait Gallery from 2 December 2016 – 9 April 2017.
