Instagram your treasures competition

Which artwork would you be brave enough to save?

The ancient artefacts in Afghanistan: hidden treasures were so precious that the director and curators of the National Museum in Kabul risked their lives to protect them.

Take a photo of the artwork in the Art Gallery of NSW that you treasure most and upload it to Instagram with the hashtag #AGNSWtreasures for your chance to win.

We’re looking for the most interesting and creative entry. Suhanya Raffel, the Gallery’s director of collections, will be the judge. The winner receives a Hidden treasures prize pack, including exhibition merchandise valued at $150, Gallery membership and a $100 gift card for the Gallery restaurant. Plus three runners up will each receive an exhibition catalogue.

Winner announced!

Congratulations to @mundelyn. As judge Suhanya Raffel said: 'It’s a photo that connects art and people in a very real way across continents’.
