The Young Archie competition invites budding artists between the ages of 5 and 18 to submit a portrait. Beginning in 2013, this annual competition is judged by the Gallery’s family programs manager and a guest judge, based on merit and originality. As well as online, all finalists are displayed at the Art Gallery of NSW held in conjunction with the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes exhibition. Artworks receiving an honourable mention are also displayed online and, since 2014, at Sydney’s SH Ervin Gallery.
