event date: 
Sunday, 22 July 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

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

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.

Winners of the Junior Warrnibald will be announced at a special event between 1-2pm on Sunday 22nd July. Each prize winner will have their work included in the Warrnibald 2018 exhibition (28th July to 23rd September 2018).

Sunday 22nd July 2018.
