ABOUT FACE is a junior portrait prize for young artists

We're inviting budding young artists aged 5-17 years to submit a portrait of someone special to them for a chance to win part of a $1,000 prize pool.

The portrait should be of a person who is special to you - someone who is known to you and plays a significant role in your life. We encourage you to draw the portrait 'from life' with your subject having a sitting for their portrait.

The competition will be judged by artist Jocelyn Maughan, based on observational drawing, merit, and originality.  

ABOUT FACE 2023 will be exhibited at the Community Gallery, Gosford Regional Gallery between 16 December 2023 and 14 January 2024.

Entries close from 4pm on Monday 11 December 2023.

Steps to enter:
•    Go to and register your artwork
•    Draw a portrait of your special person from life
•    Have your artwork delivered to Gosford Regional Gallery by 4pm on Monday 11 December 2023,  with your name and title of your art
