Youth Art Prize

HEROINES AND HEROES
The everyday and the extraordinary

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.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No silly, it’s an Artwork being thrown through the air by an Olympian!

Some heroes wear capes while others are present in our day to day lives.For the 32nd installment of the Waverley Youth Art Prize we are asking young artists from all over Sydney’s East to explore the idea of heroism. Artists may use the mediums of drawing, painting, sculpture, video and animation to create works that incorporate the theme, Heroines and Heroes – the extraordinary and the everyday.

This annual competition began in 1985 and is aimed at students aged 9-18.The Youth Art Prize offers over $3000 in prizes and in 2017, the exhibition will be judged by dynamic duo Phil James and Anna John.
