The annual competition is open to artists living on the island of Ireland, and Irish artists living abroad. The winner will receive a cash prize of €15,000, and a commission worth €5,000 to create a work for inclusion in the National Portrait Collection. There will also be two awards of €1,500 for highly commended works.
A shortlist of portraits will be chosen by the 2020 judging panel and exhibited at the National Gallery of Ireland from 21 November 2020 to 21 March 2021.
