Would you like the chance to have your work featured on the National Portrait Gallery website?

Enter this year’s National History Challenge in the People Power category. The national winner will have their winning response displayed on the National Portrait Gallery website.

Explore the lives of people who have instigated change in our society and discover the key moments that have become Turning Points in Australian history. Trawl through the National Portrait Gallery Collection to discover people involved in a story, event or issue that reflects the theme and then find out more about it. Work on your own or in a team to produce a compelling response.

More Information

Search the portraits in the collection by profession to discover people of passion and commitment that have worked towards changing society in significant ways.

Portrait Stories are short interviews with subjects and artists from the collection that share significant moments in their lives and ideas that have inspired them.

Another starting point could be Australians of the Year in Awesome Achievers or campaigners in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Activism.
