Portrait of a Senior Territorian Art Award

The Portrait of a Senior Territorian Art Award recognises and celebrates the achievements and contributions that senior Territorians have made within our community.

The Portrait of a Senior Territorian Art Award originally commenced as a one off event to celebrate the International Year of the Older Person in 1999 with support from the Northern Territory Government and the Moran Arts Foundation who host the prestigious $150,000 Doug Moran National Portrait Prize. Now in its 22nd year, the Portrait of a Senior Territorian Art Award continues to foster excellence and creativity in the art of portraiture by artists who are residents of the Northern Territory.
