Crawford Art Gallery is delighted to welcome the Zurich Portrait Prize for a second consecutive year in partnership with the National Gallery of Ireland. Sponsored by Zurich, this competition is open to artists working in Ireland, and Irish citizens based abroad. Submissions are not restricted by media; however, all entries must have been completed within the last three years. A record number of over 500 submissions were received for the Zurich Portrait Prize 2020 across a diverse range of media, themes, and techniques.
Zurich Young Portrait Prize is an inclusive art competition open to children and young people, up to the age of 18, of all abilities from across the island of Ireland. Following the huge success of the inaugural competition last year, we are delighted to present it again this year in partnership with the National Gallery of Ireland and Zurich Ireland.
Previously shown at the National Gallery of Ireland, the exhibition of shortlisted portraits runs at Crawford Art Gallery from 17 April until 11 July 2021.
