What is the Young Archie?

The Art Gallery of New South Wales invites budding artists between the ages of 5 and 18 to submit a portrait for the Young Archie portrait competition.

The portrait must be of a person who is special to you – someone who is known to you, and who knows you, and plays a significant role in your life.

There are four age categories:

  • 5-8 year olds
  • 9-12 year olds
  • 13-15 year olds
  • 16-18 year olds

Entry Instructions

If you wish to enter the portrait prize, please collect a drawing pack from the Visual Arts staffroom. You may have begun your portrait over the Summer holidays!

The College will submit your work on your behalf. Please return your works no later than Monday, 20 February 2023 to the Visual Arts staffroom, with your name, age category and House attached to the back of your drawing sleeve.

Ensure you follow the entry guidelines and criteria set out by the Art Gallery of NSW when creating your portrait.
