Acknowledging the traditional owners
The Brisbane Portrait Prize acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of this nation. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands on which our activities occur. We pay our respects to ancestors and Elders, past and present.
The Brisbane Portrait Prize is committed to honouring Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ unique cultural, artistic and spiritual relationships to the land, waters and seas and their rich and varied contributions over time.
