Young People of Bayside Art Exhibition 2024

This year’s theme for the Young People of Bayside Art Exhibition 2024 is 'How I see the World'.

Submit your artwork and have it showcased in a professional gallery setting for all Bayside locals to see. Whether you are a hobby artist or breaking it into the professional art scene, this could be a great opportunity for you to create the theme, show off your thoughts and skills, and for the audience to see the world through your eyes. 

Every young artist who displays work will be invited to the Young People of Bayside Art Awards Celebration Evening and receive a certificate from council. Artists could also be selected to receive one of eight awards for their artwork:

  • 10 - 13 year old category: winner and runner up
  • 14 - 17 year old category: winner and runner up
  • 18 - 25 year old category: winner and runner up
  • Community Choice Award (online votes from the community)
  • FReeZA Committee Choice Award (judged by young people in the FReeZA committee)

 Eligibility

Open to young people aged between 10 and 25 who have a connection to Bayside (live, work, school, study, recreate). Artists may enter one piece of art.
