Black Swan Youth Award

The Black Swan Youth Award is a prestigious national portraiture prize which encourages the creative talents of young aspiring and emerging artists. It allows them to showcase unique perspectives and builds confidence to further their art practices.

Young Archibald Award

The Young Archibald Award celebrates artistic creativity and is hosted annually at the Art Gallery of NSW.

Submitting artworks for competitions like this, prepares our students for future aspirations, such as exhibiting in the highly acclaimed Archibald Award.
