Soup cans to radio bands, icons in vogue, or 15 minutes of fame….this is pop culture!

In 2019, Waverley’s Youth Art Prize is celebrating the ‘POP YOUR CULTURE'. Interpret the theme ‘Pop Your Culture’ however you like- show us your artistic skills!

The purpose of the Waverley Youth Art Prize is to encourage creativity in young artists from within the Waverley Council area. It is an open prize and all entrants work is hung so they get to experience the joy of being an exhibiting artist and seeing an audience appreciate their work and talents. We ask parents, guardians and teachers to respect the age guidelines of the prize. While there are prizes awarded, the joy of being showcased is the real prize.
