MELT Portrait Prize

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. 

We are delighted to announce that the 2019 recipient of the Judge’s Choice Award is:
Dan Molloy for Silenced in the Shadows.

The judges nominated three works for Highly Commended recognition:
Seamus Platt for Brigid in Thornbury Blue
Annette Somers for The Worker
Michael Simms for Live Streaming.

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.
