The Black Swan Prize for Portraiture Youth Award provides young artists with an opportunity to showcase their creative talents and to challenge them from an artistic perspective through the field of portraiture.

Students in years 7-12, and adolescent patients at Princess Margaret Hospital, are invited to paint a portrait of a well known Australian, an Australian they respect/admire, or undertake a self-portrait.

The youth competition identifies emerging artists and encourages them to have faith in themselves and their developing skills.
