The Lester Prize | 2020 Entry Form - Youth

This form is the official online "Entry Form" for The Lester Prize for Portraiture (Youth Award) and represents the first stage of the entry process.
Separate "Entry Forms" and "Consent Forms" need to be completed and submitted to The Lester Prize for each portrait.
Please ensure:
- You have already downloaded the "Consent Form" from and had it signed by your Parent/Guardian.
- Your "Consent Form" is attached to this "Entry Form" before you press the SUBMIT/PAYMENT PAGE button.


By submitting this "Entry Form", the Artist agrees to The Lester Prize Terms & Conditions available from the website:
If an Artist is under the age of 18 years, the Artist's consent is provided by the Artist's parent or guardian in the form of the signed "Consent Form", and submission of this "Entry Form".
I confirm that I (or my Parent/Guardian or Teacher) have read and agree to all of the Terms & Conditions: *


Please complete all relevant fields. Fields marked with * are mandatory.  



How did you hear about us? *


Please consider very carefully the artwork you intend to submit to The Lester Prize Youth Award and whether you are likely to submit it as part of your state's Secondary School Certificate Practical Examination (e.g. HSC, NTCET, QCE, SACE, SSCE, TCE, VCE or WACE). This will limit your ability to participate in The Lester Prize Youth Exhibition, the digital Big Screen Exhibitions, and the Outdoor Exhibitions due to each state government's requirements and review period.

Works selected by The Lester Prize for exhibition must be available for the full duration of the Exhibition Season (no late deliveries accepted, no early collections permitted, all venues). To avoid disappointment, we recommend that the same artwork not be used for your The Lester Prize submission and Secondary School Certificate Practical Examination.

I confirm I have read and understood this:


All fields must be completed.
In 2020, artists can enter an UNLIMITED number of portraits but must complete separate "Entry Forms" and pay a separate entry fee for each entry.
Is your work a self-portrait?: *
I confirm that the owner consents to the submission of the portrait into The Lester Prize 2020 and, if the artist is selected as a finalist, will make the portrait available for exhibition in accordance with the Terms & Conditions.
I confirm that it is my responsibility to arrange insurance for my Portrait if I am selected as a finalist: *
In accordance with the Terms & Conditions, you may elect to offer work selected for exhibition for sale. Are you interested in this opportunity? *
