The Archibull Prize 2018 coming to a school near you????? Expressions of Interest now open

Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, tasking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and having fun

The Archibull Prize is a world-renowned art and multimedia competition focusing on the theme of ‘Feeding, Clothing, Housing and Powering a Hungry Nation is a Shared Responsibility’.

This innovative and fun STEM project based learning program is an agricultural and environmental themed art competition for primary and secondary student groups

The Archibull Prize program:

  • Brings the farm into the classroom
  • Introduces students to young people working in the agriculture sector
  • Provides opportunities for students to gain knowledge and skills about the production of the food they eat, fibres they use and the environment they live
  • Creates an opportunity for students to work together to create an amazing artwork that tells the story of agriculture
  • Builds relationships between schools, industry, business and the community
  • Raises awareness of exciting career
  • Fosters two-way conversations and builds lifelong relationships between consumers and farmers

Competing for cash prizes and the national title of Grand Champion, participating schools research a food or fibre industry while creatively transforming life-size fibreglass cows into amazing agricultural inspired artworks.

Schools also create a suite of digital multimedia communications and are paired with Young Farming Champions who visit schools, taking the farm and their career  straight into the classroom.

Being a part of The Archibull Prize is a chance to put your school on the map, with the 2017 National Grand Champion winner travelling from the iconic Sydney Royal Easter Show to the halls of the NSW Parliament.

Over the past seven years The Archibull Prize has engaged over 160,000 students in agricultural conversations and learning experiences. Teachers saw first-hand the impact of  a successful combination of arts and multimedia activities, across multiple key learning areas. Put simply, The Archibull Prize is a successful addition to any learning program.
