Tasmania's premier youth portraiture award is the result of a highly successful partnership between RACT Insurance, Clemenger Tasmania, Geon and Tasmanian Regional Arts. The objective of the award is to foster the development of young Tasmanian artists and provide an opportunity for the public to appreciate the talents of Tasmania's youth.

Tasmanian artists aged 30 and under are invited to paint a portrait of a living Tasmanian who is important to them. An artist statement describing the inspiration and meaning behind the artwork is also submitted.

The winner will receive $5,000 and a trip for two to the Archibald Prize exhibition in Sydney
