Prize value is $1000 for the winning entry.

Created to celebrate the diversity of the LGBTQI community, the MELT Portrait Prize is an opportunity for visual artists to celebrate their heroes and document figures in the community.

During MELT a selection of shortlisted artworks of the LGBTQI community submitted by artists from Brisbane and beyond will be exhibited in the inaugural MELT Portrait Prize with one overall winner.

Ten artworks will be shortlisted and displayed at the Brisbane Powerhouse Wed 03–Sun 14 February 2016. The MELT Portrait Prize overall winner will be announced in the second week of the exhibition. Shortlisted artworks will be visible to the public Mon 9am–5pm and Tue–Sun 9am–9pm between the specified dates.

Want to enter?

The subject of your portrait must be a member of the global LGBTQI community – you as the artist do not necessarily have to identify as LGBTQI. All mediums that can be hung are encouraged.

Entries need to be received by Sun 24 January.

Late or incomplete entries will not be considered.
