Youth Art Prize

Best in Show

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.

In 2018, Waverley’s Youth Art Prize is celebrating the ‘Best in Show’ – whether it’s furry friends or creepy critters, we want to see animals or pets packed full of personality.

Interpret the theme ‘Best in Show’ however you like- show us your artistic skills!

Exhibit with us at the Waverley Library and have your chance to win a piece of over $3000 in art materials and workshops.

Open to young artists aged 9-18 years.
