Black Swan Youth Portraiture Awards 2013

The 2013 Black Swan Youth Portraiture Prize provides young artists with an opportunity to showcase their creative talents and to challenge them from an artistic perspective through the complex field of portraiture. The youth event runs in conjunction with the Black Swan Prize for Portraiture, one of Australia’s richest portraiture prizes.

Students are invited to submit works of a well-known Australian; an Australian they respect or admire, or they may undertake a self-portrait. Of the 17 artworks chosen for the Year 10-12 category, All Saints’ College had four Year 10 art students selected as finalists; Erin Ginty, Madison Hoes, Will MacFarlane and Cameron Wright.

Hundreds of entries are received each year for this youth portraiture prize, and this year, the organisers of the event have decided to hold a secondary exhibition; a Salon Des Refuses. Student work that did not make the shortlist for the finals, but was deemed of such a high quality will be exhibited in a separate exhibition to be held at the Pickled Fig Café at South Beach. All Saints’ College have two students represented in this exhibition, Sarthak Barbudhe and William Renner-Shao, both in Year 10.
