The Lester Prize for Portraiture


The Lester Prize (formerly ARTrinsic Inc’s Black Swan Prize for Portraiture) is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 2007 and has grown to become one of the country’s most prestigious prizes for portraiture.

Our community is currently facing a huge health, social and economic upheaval with COVID-19. It is at times like this that we turn to the Arts to find meaning and beauty.  When we come through this crisis—it will be more important than ever that we encourage and support this sector.

By becoming involved in The Lester Collective, you and others like you will be showing your support for the Arts and backing our most talented artists.

$500, $5000 or $25000—every donation will help us to support artists and create a more vibrant, connected and culturally engaged community. All donations over $2 are 100% tax deductible. We are enormously grateful for all donations and promptly thank and receipt all gifts.

The Lester Prize continues to work with artists providing them opportunities to create and inspire us. We encourage you to help The Lester Prize bring our community closer together through engagement in art.
