There will also be two awards of €1,500 for highly commended works. The aim of the Zurich Portrait Prize is to showcase and encourage interest in contemporary portraiture, and to raise the profile of the long-standing and constantly evolving National Portrait Collection at the National Gallery of Ireland. The shortlisted artists’ works will be exhibited in the Gallery from 5 October 2019 – 12 January 2020, and at their partner venue, Crawford Art Gallery, Cork, in spring 2020.
