Each year the finalists in The Archibull Prize travel to the Sydney Showground in November for our Awards and Exhibition Day.
We leave them in the loving hands of the education team at the showground to be stored and then showcased in all their glory at the Sydney Royal Easter Show in March/April of the following year.
Following the show our Archies then travel back across the country to their homes with the exception of
The Archie who will reside in Minister Blair’s Martin Place office for the next twelve months
The Archie who will reside in the Director Generals Office
The Archie who will reside in the Minister’s country HQ at Orange
and the Archie’s who have been chosen by the RAS of NSW to take pride of place at their events for the next 12 months
A big shout out to Jenny Hughes RAS Senior Agricultural Education Coordinator and her team for their support in showcasing the Archies to close to 1 Million people at the Sydney Royal Easter Show
Jenny Hughes RAS Senior Agricultural Education Coordinator double checks the Archie’s are secure as they are loaded by Hunter and Co Transport for their journey from the showground to their place of display for the next 12 months
A big shoutout to our supporting partners without whom none of this would happen
