Youth Art Prize

The Waverley Youth Art Prize is back for 2021!

The Waverley Youth Art Prize encourages creativity in young artists from across Sydney. It is open to anyone aged between 9 – 18 years old who is living, studying or even simply who plays in Sydney’s East. All artworks are hung so that future artists get to experience the joy of exhibiting  and see an audience appreciate their work. Young artists also go in the running to receive encouragement awards including art packs and vouchers to attend classes at local institutions such as the National Art School.

The Waverley Youth Art Prize responds to a different theme each year. In 2021 the theme is:

We are Family  
Ancestors, Bloodlines and Belonging

We are asking young artists to create an artwork in any medium which responds to this provocation.
