The Purpose of the Waverley Youth Art Prize is to encourage creativity in young artists from Sydney’s Eastern Beaches. It is an open prize and all artwork entries are hung so they get to experience the joy of being an exhibiting artist and seeing an audience appreciate their work and talents. We ask parents, guardians and teachers to respect the age guidelines of the prize.


While there are prizes awarded, the joy of seeing their artwork on display is the real prize.
