DESCRIPTION

The inaugural iD Digital Portraiture Award is an annual event intended to extend traditional notions of portraiture and reflects the National Portrait Gallery's commitment to fostering emerging artists between the ages of 18 and 30 years old with an interest in contemporary technology.

With the generous support of Macquarie Group Foundation, the National Portrait Gallery is offering a $10,000 bursary to the artist judged to have made the most outstanding screen-based digital portrait.

The artist awarded the iD Digital Portraiture Award for 2012 will be given the opportunity to undertake an artist residency of up to four weeks at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA) one of Australia's leading centres for the development and presentation of contemporary art.
