Congratulations to Fine Art Diploma student Gustavo Fernandes for his haunting and gritty portrait, he is the winner of this year’s Sir Phillip Trousdell Portrait Prize!

The judges also gave speical mention to Andrea Lippett’s piece saying it was sensitive and beautiful, while Caroline Wong’s portrait was described and direct and honest’ Meghana Sengupta exhibited an interesting bridge between portrait and pattern. Great to see such different work across the Contemporary Portrait Diploma.  The judges also wanted to forward comments that they thought Fine Art Diploma student Sarah Barker Brown’s painting was striking and luminescent and it was a very tough call between these works and the winner.
