The Lester Prize

Lester Group is passionate about actively supporting the arts, with Richard Lester AM being a founding sponsor of The Black Swan Prize for Portraiture. In honour of its leading patron, this prize has been renamed The Lester Prize.

The new name recognizes the leadership and support of Richard (Dick) Lester in helping the prize grow into one of the most prestigious on Australia’s visual arts calendar.

At $50,000, first prize is a standout in the field and one of the country’s richest prizes for portraiture, well above that of other local art competitions.

“We want to live in a great environment and vibrant community, so you have to help build that, you can’t sit back and let others do it.”
