This prize is held biennially.

The portrait is to be of an actual person. It is expected that the subject of the work has sat for the artist at least once. The subject of your portrait may be someone who has captured your interest or someone who inspires you.

In order to enter you must indicate some link with Townsville, however tenuous. The link can be the artist, the sitter, some item in the work,etc. This is to capture stories of Townsville and to justify the winning work entering the City of Townsville Art Collection.

There is also the Percival Photographic Painting Prize and the Percival Animal Portrait Prize.
