The Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes is an annual exhibition eagerly anticipated by artists and audiences alike.

Archie 100: A Century of the Archibald Prize, a landmark exhibition celebrating 100 years of Australia’s oldest and most-loved portrait award.

The Archibald Prize, first awarded in 1921, is the country’s favourite art award, and one of its most prestigious. Awarded to the best portrait painting, it’s a who’s who of Australian culture – from politicians to celebrities, sporting heroes to artists.

The Wynne Prize is awarded to the best landscape painting of Australian scenery, or figure sculpture, while the Sulman Prize is given to the best subject painting, genre painting or mural project in oil, acrylic, watercolour or mixed media.

Each year, the trustees of the Art Gallery of NSW judge the Archibald and Wynne, and invite an artist to judge the Sulman.

Visit the exhibition in its new location on lower level 2 to vote for your favourite portrait in the ANZ People’s Choice award before entries close on 29 August and see the work of budding artists aged 5–18 on display in the Young Archies.
