About the Young Archies
Based on the famous Archibald Prize, the Young Archies Awards is an annual portrait competition open to all students in Department for Education, Children and Young People schools and colleges.
Awards are presented in year categories for the best portrait of a person created by a student during the 12 months before the closing date.
Portraits can be in any 2D media, like a drawing, painting, or collage, and are of someone personally known to the student.
