Thailand's first national portraiture competition is judged in September. The exhibition is open to the public next month.

Considering this is the inaugural year of the Portrait Prize, the organisers have been hugely impressed by the quantity, quality, and variety of entries. It demonstrates the rich vein of creativity and talent residing in Thailand. More than 180 professional, amateur, and student artists will vie for three prizes: Portrait Prize of Thai Baht 500,000, Packing Room Prize of Thai Baht 200,000, and People’s Choice Prize of Thai Baht 100,000.

The jury will meet in September to decide on the winner of the Portrait Prize. RCB’s exhibition team will also choose the winner of the Packing Room Prize. Both will be announced on Wednesday 29 September. All entries will go on exhibition at River City Bangkok from 30 September to 7 December where the visitors can vote on their favorite artworks for the People’s Choice Prize, which will be announced at the close of the exhibition.

Venue: RCB Galleria 1 and 2, 2nd floor, River City Bangkok
