UPDATE – We regretfully annoounce that this year the BCAC Youth Award will not take place. We hope to continue the award in 2021.

The Bellingen Youth Art Prize was the BCAC\’s annual visual arts exhibition and prize for the young people in our community with age categories of 5-8, 9-12, 13-15 and 15-18 years.

The last Youth Art Exhibition & Prize in 2017 was a great success with a record number of entries and a terrific quality of works exhibited.

Many thanks to our wonderful sponsors – Camp Creative, Heart & Soul Art Prize, Bellingen IGA, Cardow & Partners, Bellingen Greengrocers, Kombu, Weave Bellingen, The Faerie Shop, Roots Records & Music Bellingen and the Bellingen Shire Council.

We have regretfully decided not to run this annual event but have replaced it with the BCAC Senior Youth Art Award. Two awards of $1,000 each are awarded each year with one going to a senior student from each of the Bellingen Shire High Schools\’ year 12 students, one from Dorrigo High and one from Bellingen High.
