Wild At Art 2024!

Monday, 12 Aug
5:00 pm

Get excited – entries are now open for Wild At Art 2024!

From now until Monday 12 August – International Youth Day – we’re welcoming entries from young artists and nature lovers aged 5-12, showcasing the importance of protecting Australia’s threatened animals and plants for generations to come.

Enter Competition

Australia is home to incredible wildlife and plants found nowhere else on Earth – but we also have one of the worst extinction rates!

Whether it’s a knack for visual arts, or a way with words, getting creative with Wild At Art is a great way for kids to express themselves and use their voice to impact the future of Australia’s special wildlife and plants.

We’re also excited to announce this year’s competition is supported by independent news organisation, the Guardian. The Guardian is committed to agenda-setting coverage of the climate crisis, and its implications for conservation and sustainability. 

Key things to know about Wild At Art 2024 to help young people to take part:

  • Artwork entries must be a drawing, painting or mixed media work. Remember to check out our artist instructions for helpful tips.
  • Artworks must depict native Australian plants or animalslisted as threatened or extinct under state or territory law. Use the Australian Government’s Species Profile and Threats Database if you’re unsure whether an animal or plant is endangered or threatened.
  • Each artwork needs an adult sponsor – a parent, guardian or teacher – to submit on the child’s behalf. If you are a teacher, you must obtain consent from the parent or guardian of the child prior to submitting the artwork.
  • Submissions are to be made electronically via the submission form here. Entries open today, and close on Monday 12 August.
  • One artwork entry per child, unless the entry is a separate entry for groupwork (open to groups of children at schools or education centres only).

For full details on entry criteria please read the terms and conditions.

Submit Artwork

For some inspiration, take a look at one of last year’s finalist who chose to incorporate some of nature’s beauty within their artwork.
