Youth Art Prize

FRAMED - Online Exhibition

Waverley Council is celebrating the 35th Waverley Youth Art Prize by inviting all young artists of the eastern suburbs to create a portrait of someone that inspires them. The artists ‘sitter’ may be distinguished in art, letters, science, politics or the playground. The sitter might be an everyday icon, a loved member of the artist’s life, a local personality or hero. For the purpose of this prize, your artwork doesn't have to be made from life, so get thinking about who inspires you and how you will depict them. This is not a painting prize with portraits accepted across the forms of sculpture, painting, drawing, photography, ceramics, textiles, video and animation.  In this portrait prize, all art works will be hung.

This year’s prize features over $5000 in art materials, workshops and experiences and will also see the introduction of a packing room prize.
