The annual MELT Portrait Prize gives visual artists the creative license to celebrate heroes in the LGBTIQ+ community; whether it be a local icon or an internationally acclaimed personality.
Having developed a reputation for attracting exceptional works of art from across Australia, this highly anticipated portrait prize offers a Judge’s Choice and People’s Choice Prize.
The result, a stunning exhibition of shortlisted works exhibited throughout Brisbane Powerhouse, has previously featured a variety of mediums from painting to photography, drawing and digital illustration.
Join us when the Judge’s Choice recipient will be announced during the exhibition launch from on IDAHOBIT Day, Friday 17 May. The People’s Choice recipient, chosen by patron votes in venue, will be announced at the end of MELT. The Judge’s Choice and People’s Choice winner will each receive $1000 in prize money.
