The Art Gallery of New South Wales invites budding artists between the ages of 5 and 18 to submit a portrait for the Young Archie 2019 competition. The portrait must be of a person who is special to you – someone who is known to you and who knows you and plays a significant role in your life.
We prefer that the portrait is ‘painted from life’ and that your subject has a sitting for their portrait, like with the Archibald Prize. You may also create the portrait from memory or take your own photograph to use for reference. For more information, read our Young Archie FAQs.
Competition opens: 29 January 2019
Entries must be received: before 10 March 2019, 5pm
We welcome entries from schools but, due to numbers, we strongly encourage you to first run your own internal competition then submit only your top works (up to 10) into the official Young Archie competition at the Art Gallery of NSW.
