The Junior Warrnibald 2018

4 July 2018 @ 10:00 am - 20 July 2018 @ 3:00 pm

$10 entry fee

In 2018, Warrnambool Art Gallery (WAG) and Western District Employment Access (WDEA) are excited to announce the inaugural Junior Warrnibald. The Junior Warrnibald is a portrait competition, just like the Warrnibald, but for artists aged 18 and under. Artists will have the opportunity to create and exhibit a 2D portrait of someone in their lives who they look up to. Portrait subjects can be of anyone who inspires them. The subject must know and have a relationship with the artist, for example the artist’s subject could be a parent, a grandparent, a foster carer, a neighbour, a friend, a teacher, a doctor, a nurse, a shop owner etc.


All entries will be eligible to receive a prize in the artist’s age group. First and second prizes will be awarded in 4 age groups: up to age 5, ages 6-10, ages 11-15, and ages 16-18. The first prize winners in each age group will receive a cash prize of $100 from Commonwealth Bank Warrnambool. The second prize winners in each age group will receive a Darrian Office Choice Art Gift Voucher valued at $50.

A special award will also be given to one artist whose work displays outstanding creativity. This winner will receive a cash prize of $100 and be given the opportunity to work with a local graphic designer to create a children’s mascot for the Warrnambool Art Gallery.

Thank you to the Junior Warrnibald 2018 sponsors Darrian Office Choice and Commonwealth Bank Warrnambool.

Artists can choose to make their entry at the Warrnambool Art Gallery (pencils provided only) or can complete their entries at home. Entries can be submitted at any time between 10am Wednesday 4th July to 3pm Friday 20th July 2018. Entries will be hung on the wall as they are received during weekday business hours (10am to 5pm).
