Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes 2017
29 July – 22 October 2017
The annual Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes exhibition is Australia’s most extraordinary art event.
The Archibald Prize (first awarded in 1921 and now with prize money of $100,000) is Australia’s favourite art award and one of its most prestigious. Awarded to the best portrait painting, the Archibald Prize is a who’s who of Australian culture – from politicians to celebrities, sporting heroes to artists.
The Wynne Prize (prize money $50,000) is awarded to the best landscape painting of Australian scenery, or figure sculpture.
The Sulman Prize (prize money $40,000) 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 Prizes, and invite an artist to judge the Sulman Prize.
Visit the exhibition and vote for your favourite portrait in the People’s Choice award, and see the work of budding artists aged 5-18 on display in the Young Archies.
