Inspired by the Portrait Gallery’s Darling Portrait Prize, the Little Darlings Youth Portrait Prize is an annual national competition for primary and secondary students, with four separate categories across Kindergarten to Year 12.

For the 2024 prize, entrants were asked to respond to the theme ‘My story’ by painting, drawing, photographing, printing or combining all of these to make their portrait.

This year the National Portrait Gallery are absolutely delighted with every single entry received for the Little Darlings Youth Portrait Prize 2024. Judges Marina Neilson and Mark Mohell, together with guest judge, celebrated children’s book author Jeannie Baker, selected 12 portraits from over 550 entries. A big congratulations to all the finalists!

Works are presented exclusively at the National Portrait Gallery from May to September 2024.
