Support Us

The Brisbane Portrait Prize would not be possible without the generosity of our community. As a charity, we rely on donations to create this annual celebration of art.

Since launching in 2019 over $370,000 in prize money has been awarded to our talented artists, with over 2500 entries over the last four years of the BPP. It has fast-tracked artists’ careers and shared the life experiences of both high-profile and the humble sitters.

You can support the Brisbane Portrait Prize in many ways. Some of these are detailed below.
