ENTRY FOR 2013 MORAN PRIZES ARE NOW OPEN
ENTRY FOR 2013 MORAN PRIZES ARE NOW OPEN
ENTER NOW FOR THE 2013 DOUG MORAN NATIONAL PORTRAIT PRIZE & MORAN CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHIC PRIZES

http://www.moranprizes.com.au/enter
THE MORAN PRIZES 2013 | CELEBRATING 25 YEARS
For 25 years, The Moran Prizes have been supporting the individuality of Australian artists and their talents.
In celebration of Australia’s bicentennial, Doug and Greta Moran established the Moran Arts Foundation, aiming to foster portraiture skills. Since 2007, the Foundation has also been a strong supporter of excellence in photography.
In a world focused on celebrity, The Moran Prizes are about the greatness in every Australian. Veteran art curator and director, Daniel Thomas AM will be again supporting The Moran Prizes, judging the 2013 portrait finalists along side Artist, Ben Quilty.
“I am honoured to be part of the judging process for the Moran Prizes in their 25th year. The Doug Moran National Portrait Prize allows unique individualities to shine. Besides celebrities, often only partly known to artists before a portrait-taking session, in the Moran we also encounter strong emotional connections between artists and long-familiar intimates. Two Australians, the winning artist and a sometimes humble sitter, will receive global attention from this, the world’s richest art prize.” – Daniel Thomas  AM
“I’ll be looking for good strong painting. I want to see more than just a likeness of the sitter. I want to see how that person sounds, how they have affected the artist, how they think and how their humanity has attracted the artist to work with them. I’m less interested in likeness and more interested in how paint can make me feel.”  – Ben Quilty
This year, the Moran Prizes will be hosted at Juniper Hall, in Paddington (Sydney). Juniper Hall is set to become the permanent home of The Moran Arts Foundation Collection and the venue for the annual exhibition of the Moran Prizes.
The historic Georgian building will become an important new exhibition space, displaying the winning works from this year’s competition.
