Archibald Prize

The Archibald Prize is regarded as the most important portraiture prize in Australia. It began in 1921 after a bequest from Jules Francois Archibald[?], the editor of The Bulletin[?] magazine and is awarded annually by the Trustees of the Art Gallery of New South Wales for 'the best portrait, preferentially of some man or woman distinguished in Art, Letters, Science or Politics, painted by an artist resident in Australasia during the 12 months preceding the date fixed by the Trustees for sending in the pictures'.
