Our annual inclusive art competition aims to foster and support creativity, originality and self-expression in children and young people. The Zurich Young Portrait Prize accepts entries from young people, up to the age of 18, of all abilities, from across the island of Ireland. 20 finalists in four categories (ages 6 and under, ages 7–11, ages 12–15 and ages 16–18), chosen by our panel of judges, will be displayed in an exhibition in the Gallery from 13 November 2021 to 3 April 2022, before travelling to Crawford Art Gallery, Cork. The overall winner will be awarded a personalised wooden box of high-quality art materials, specific to their choice of material in their portrait, and a cash prize of €500.
Young people of all abilities are invited to take part. Prizes will be awarded to one overall winner, plus one winner from each age category:
