Mario Sukkar, age 15 Caught eating in the night, Young Archie 2014 winner, 13-15 year olds
Young Archie 2014 competition
Budding artists between the ages of 5 and 18 were invited to submit a portrait for the Art Gallery of NSW’s second Young Archie competition, as part of our family-focused activities for the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes 2014 exhibition.
The portrait was to be of 'a person who is special to you – someone who is known to you and plays a significant role in your life’.
There are four age categories: 5-8, 9-12, 13-15 and 16-18. The competition was judged by artist Ben Quilty, Archibald Prize winner in 2011 and now a Gallery trustee, and Victoria Collings, the Gallery’s senior coordinator of education and family programs, based on merit and originality.
Five finalists from each category will be displayed at the Gallery as well as here on the Gallery website. Artworks that received an honourable mention are displayed online and at the SH Ervin Gallery in the Rocks alongside the Salon des Refusés. One winner was chosen in each category.
Each finalist receives an art pack from Faber-Castell, ANZ money box and Archibald 14 catalogue. Each winner receives a $100 ANZ Visa gift card, an art hamper from Faber-Castell and a family pass to the upcoming Pop to popism exhibition at the Gallery as well as an ANZ money box and Archibald 14 catalogue.
