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.
