DESCRIPTION

Event Description

Visit the eighth annual Young Archie competition exhibition at the Art Gallery of New South Wales to discover the creativity of young artists from around Australia.

Inspired by the Archibald Prize, the Young Archie competition invites children and teenagers aged five to 18 to submit a portrait of someone who is special to them and plays a significant role in their life.

More than 1800 entries were received in the 2020 Young Archie competition, which were judged by guest judge, Western Sydney based artist and winner of the 2020 Sulman Prize, Marikit Santiago, and Art Gallery of NSW family programs manager Victoria Collings.

A perennial favourite at the Gallery, the Young Archie competition is part of the family program for the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes 2020 exhibition.

There are four age categories: 5-8 year olds, 9-12 year olds, 13-15 year olds and 16-18 year olds. The ten finalists in each age category are on display at the Gallery exhibition until 10 January 2021.

Artworks receiving an honourable mention are also displayed online and, since 2014, at Sydney’s SH Ervin Gallery.
