The Young Artists Awards are held in August/September each year and are open to artists between the ages of 16 and 25 who live or attend school within the wider Mt Eden area.

Culminating in an exhibition of work and judged by well known artists, the awards comprise of generous cash and other grants to further the winners’ art careers.

The aim of the Young Artists Awards is to provide a platform for young artists to exhibit their work, to place it in a professional gallery environment and to encourage adventurous experimentation and creativity. Eden Arts has been supporting young artists in this way for more than 30 years.

The 2019 Young Artists Awards took place from August 1 to 4.
