Endorsed by the City of Fremantle, the Fremantle Portrait Prize is expected to become one of Australia's most prestigious photographic portrait awards. Ken Duncan, AOM, is our distinguished patron. The 2012 competition involved the initial submission of digital images during the period 1 May 2012 to 1 August 2012. 696 entries were received from 21 countries. Of these, 641 were accepted as meeting the guidlines specified in the competition's regulations. The 641 portraits were then short-listed by a panel of three independent distinguished judges. The 60 short-listed images were exhibited as prints for final judging in the Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery, Fremantle, followed by an Exhibition of all finalists' prints from 6th to 21st October 2012. This online competition is the final element of the 2012 prize. It seeks to give the wider photographic community across the world the opportunity to select the popular choice (which may be the same as the official judges or completely different). The Fremantle Portrait Prize promotes excellence in the art of portrait photography at the same time as raising funds for the well established charitable organisation, Arthritis and Osteoporosis Western Australia. By participating in the Fremantle Portrait Prize you can help vital work in the prevention and treatment of arthritis which occurs across all age groups, from children to the elderly.Arthritis and Osteoporosis Western Australia will benefit from all proceeds.
