'Cute' cow portrait wins Tas art comp
A 19 year old has won the Tasmanian Youth Portrait Prize
Budding Hobart artist Hilton Owen, 19, has won a new Tasmanian art competition for his work Self-Portrait With Cow.

Forty-three emerging artists aged 13 to 30 entered the Tasmanian Youth Portrait Prize.

Competition organiser Felicity Harris says Owen's painting of himself standing next to a cow was the standout winner.

'It's actually quite an amazing portrait,' she said.

'It's got him and then quite a large cow, and he's got his hands outstretched and he's smiling with his cow.

'It's quite a cute portrait actually.'

For winning, Hilton receives $5,000 and a trip for two to Sydney to see the Archibald Prize.

'I believe his work has already been sold, which is quite exciting for him,' Ms Harris added.

'He'll get a lot of recognition from having his work tour around the state.'
