🎨 Calling young artists – the Young Archie competition is back for 2024 and entries are open!
If you're a budding artist between the ages of 5 and 18, you're invited to submit a portrait for the Young Archie 2024 competition.
Your portrait must be of a person who is special to you – someone who is known to you and who knows you and plays a significant role in your life (including self-portraits), and it must be sent to the Art Gallery before 17 March 2024.
We're looking forward to seeing your creative and expressive entries in the 12th year of #YoungArchie, so break out the art supplies and find your muse!
