A portrait of our daughter Alexandra won the Mailroom Prize and the People’s Choice Prize in the 2010 Shirley Hannan National Portrait Award. The conditions of the prize state that the portrait must be a true, realistic representation of the subject and entry is by a photograph of the painting plus a photograph of the subject for comparison. The award attracts many of Australia’s top professional portrait painters and this year there were two Archibald winners and 10 multi- Archibald and Doug Moran finalists in the 34 artists selected.
