About the competition
Sydney Catholic Schools’ annual Portrait Prize gives students the chance to recognise and appreciate someone well-known to them and who plays a significant role in their life by paying them one of the highest compliments – painting or drawing their portrait.
The theme for the 2022 Portrait Prize was: Me, You, Us.
The Portrait Prize attracted a strong field of 211 entries from talented artists in Kindergarten through to Year 12.
Each year entrants’ works will be exhibited in a virtual gallery on the Sydney Catholic Schools’ website, and prizes will be awarded in all age categories.
Finalists have the opportunity to represent Sydney Catholic Schools in the Young Archie competition run by the Art Gallery of NSW.
