The Gallery’s annual student art writing prize
In partnership with Art & Australia magazine, this annual writing competition has been created to encourage students to express their ideas about art practice and current exhibitions through writing. To further inspire students we have expanded the competition to include writing label text as well as essays, and also have primary, junior and senior high school sections. Prizes include subscriptions to Art & Australia magazine and Gallery bookshop vouchers. Students may enter one or both sections.
Section 1: Art label
Focusing on the contemporary galleries choose your favourite work and submit label text based on your interpretation or opinion about the artwork.
|Junior: Years 3–6||maximum 50 words|
|Intermediate: Years 7–10||maximum 75 words|
|Senior: Years 11–12||maximum 100 words|
Section 2: Art essay
Write a critical review of an exhibition you have recently visited at the Art Gallery of NSW – or another exhibition within your local area if you do not live close to the Gallery.
|Intermediate: Years 7–10||maximum 300 words|
|Senior: Years 11–12||500 – 750 words|
