Budding artists between the ages of 5 and 18 are invited to submit a portrait for the Art Gallery of NSW’s Young Archie Competition, as part of the gallery’s family-focused activities for the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes 2015 exhibition.

The portrait should be of a person who is special to you – someone who is known to 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

The competition will be judged by artist Del Kathryn Barton, Archibald Prize winner in 2008 and 2013, and Victoria Collings, the Gallery’s senior coordinator of education and family programs, based on merit and originality.

Five finalists from each category will be exhibited at the Gallery and on the Gallery website. One winner will be chosen in each category.

Each finalist will receive an art pack from Faber-Castell, ANZ money box and Archibald 15 catalogue.

Each winner will receive a gift card from ANZ to the value of $100, an art hamper from Faber-Castell and a family pass to the upcoming exhibition The Greats: masterpieces of Western art from the National Galleries of Scotland at the Gallery as well as an ANZmoney box and Archibald 15 catalogue.

Artworks that received an honourable mention are displayed on the Gallery website and at the SH Ervin Gallery in the Rocks alongside the Salon des Refusés.

Competition opens 6 May 2015 and entries must be received by 5pm 9 June 2015 – finalists will be announced on 9 July 2015.
