PORTRAIT NOW! 2019
The Museum of National History invites all Nordic artists to participate in the international portrait competition PORTRAIT NOW! The Carlsberg Foundation’s Portrait Award.
The aim of the competition is to bring about greater interest for ‘the portrait’ amongst artists and the general public. The competition applies to artists in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Greenland, The Faroe Islands, Iceland and The Åland Islands.
‘The portrait’ is understood as a reproduction of a particular person. It need not to be naturalistic, but should, however, seek to characterize the person as an individual. The medium used for this reproduction is at the discretion of the artist. The artwork must be based on at least one face to face session with the portrayed.
The registration is open at https://portraitnow.org/
The final deadline for registration is December 31st 2018. An international jury will then select the winners and the artworks that will be presented at Frederiksborg Castle in May 2019.
We hope you will help spread the word among colleagues, students and others who might be interested in participating. We look forward to seeing all the wonderful artworks.
