The Archibald Prize for portrait painting is the country’s favourite and most significant art award.
Since 1921, it has highlighted figures from all walks of life, from famous faces to local heroes, reflecting back to us the stories of our times.
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 to vote for your favourite portrait in the ANZ People’s Choice award before voting closes on 31 July and see the work of budding artists aged 5–18 on display in the Young Archies. For families, there are also a children’s trail and labels.
