The Archibald Prize for portrait painting is Australia's most celebrated and democratic – and sometimes controversial – art award. Open to any artist living in Australia or New Zealand, it has, since 1921, reflected the unique experiences of the people in this region, highlighting figures from all walks of life.

The Wynne and Sulman Prizes 2024

Equally exciting for the diverse entries they attract from across the country, the Wynne Prize focuses on landscape painting of Australian scenery or figure sculpture, while the Sulman Prize covers subject painting, genre painting, or a mural project.

The must-see annual exhibition of finalists and winners in these three competitions is always a highlight.

Each year, the trustees of the Art Gallery of New South Wales judge the Archibald and Wynne, and they invite an artist to judge the Sulman. The 2024 Sulman Prize judge is Tom Polo.

Make sure to vote for your favourite portrait in the ANZ People's Choice award before entries close on 4 August 2024.

Don't miss the chance to see art by our next generation of artists, aged 5-18, in the Young Archies. There's also a children's trail for families to enjoy.
