About Face, the Gosford Junior Portrait Prize is an exciting opportunity for budding young artists from 5 to 18 years old to demonstrate their drawing talent and compete for a prize pool of $1,000. Prizes are awarded to portrait drawings that are drawn from life, of people special to each young artist. 

Each prizewinner will receive a giftcard courtesy of the Jocelyn Maughan Art Foundation and Star 104.5 FM

About your portrait subject
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’ and that your subject has a ‘sitting’ for their portrait.
