Dean Cogle Portrait Prize 2021

The Dean Cogle Portrait Prize encourages emerging and professional artists from Australia and New Zealand to submit original portraits of local heroes, people they admire, or self-portraits. The annual prize awards the brightest and best in portraiture, with the winner awarded $5000 thanks to sponsorship by Michelle Neumann. Along with the $500 People’s Choice winner and the $200 Cogle Family Packing Room Prize (the possum), the Dean Cogle Portrait Prize will be announced on opening night, at the Dust Temple Gallery.

Dean Cogle Portrait Prize 2021 Opening Night: Saturday 14 August 

Dean Cogle was the first resident artist at Dust Temple and started the Portrait Prize in 2015. He brought so much to the creative landscape of the Gold Coast, an understated instigator of culture for over 40 years. We are honoured to be able to continue to present the Dean Cogle Portrait Prize with the gracious support of Michelle Neumann and the Cogle family.
