Winners Announced for the 11th Prospect Portrait Prize
After a wonderful opening night we are very proud to announce the winner of the 11th Prospect Portrait Prize:
Congratulations to Zoe Freney for her portrait 'Self with Beluga (after Da Vinci)'.
'Like Cecilia Galleranis' white ermine, the meaning of the beluga remains ambiguous. Is it a symbol of our fragile planet?'

Congratulations also to George Gillies for her portrait 'Dinner for One'. George was the winner of the Payinthi Staff Pick.
'Sitting at the edge of exhaustion, a plastic fork has never felt so heavy. All is merely an echo of its form.'
