The Wellington Youth Art Prize is a non-acquisitive prize open to young artists aged 12 to 25 who currently live, study or work in, or have lived or studied in Wellington over the past four years.

The competition gives promising young artists the opportunity to showcase and present their work to the community

This year artists are asked to respond to the theme “A Slice of Life”, with the artwork for the promotional poster produced by local young artist Zac Roberts.

The Wellington Youth Art Prize 2020 has three age categories; 12 to 15 years, 16 to 19 years and 20 to 25 years.  Entries in all mediums are welcomed, although some limitations apply to size. 2019 VCE artwork is welcomed.
