Australian Children Art Society is thrilled to announce that in 2019 the ACAS Art Prize will celebrate its 5th year!
Established in 2015, the ACAS Art Prize is Australia's a new and most progressive local government art award. It was founded by the artist (who is also a motivational speaker and an author) Jesslyn Christabelle Wijaya, at a time when only a small handful of kids art prizes were in Australia and the community had very little support and few opportunities to exhibit their work.
Australian Children Art Society Painting Exhibition submission will be open from 1st August 2019
Children from the age of 4 to 17 years are welcome to submit their painting
