  • Entries close 9pm, Wednesday 14 August 2013 and winners will be announced Sunday, 25 August at a special presentation at the Art Gallery of NSW.

Less than two weeks to go until entries close for this year’s Art Gallery Society of NSW Kids Drawing Prize. Now in its third year, the competition is supported by the oldest pencil maker in the world, Faber-Castell and features an impressive judging panel, including celebrated Australian artist, Ken Done, Countess Natalie von Faber-Castell and Archibald Prize People’s Choice 2012 winner, Jenny Sages.

Judged for their imagination and drawing skills, four promising young artists will be rewarded with a Faber-Castell hamper and an encounter with the prestigious judging panel, all to help boost and nurture their creativity into the future. Each winner’s works will also make a tour of Sydney, first exhibited in the Art Gallery Society of NSW Members’ Lounge and later showcased on Sydney’s High Street in the Dymocks building.

This year’s competition theme is My Sydney, drawing inspiration from the Art Gallery of NSW’s current exhibition, Sydney moderns: art for a new world. Young artists are encouraged to be creative with themes of landscape, both natural and urban.

The competition, which is open to Art Gallery of NSW members, accepts artworks created using pencils, coloured pencils, chalk, oil pastels, charcoal and watercolour pencils, by children in age categories 5-6, 7-8, 9-12 and 13-16 years.

Faber-Castell is the foundation sponsor of the annual Art Gallery Society of NSW Kids Drawing Prize and is a proud sponsor of the Society’s Kids Club, which runs a popular art program for budding young artists with regular workshops.

Entries close 9pm, Wednesday 14 August 2013 and winners will be announced Sunday, 25 August at a special presentation at the Art Gallery of NSW.
