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
To be considered for selection, an entrant must comply with all entry instructions and conditions. About your portrait subjectWe prefer that the portrait is ‘painted from life’ and that your subject has a sitting for their portrait, like with the Archibald Prize. You may also create the portrait from memory or take your own photograph to use for reference. For more information, read our Young Archie FAQs. For schoolsWe welcome entries from schools but, due to numbers, we strongly encourage you to first run your own internal competition then submit only your top works (up to 10) into the official Young Archie competition at the Art Gallery of NSW.

They love participating in Michelle’s calming learning environment because they feel included and valued. They’re really enjoying their art and the art shows they’ve now been invited to display their work at. They have produced some amazing work. We can't thank Michelle enough."
