The Mosman Youth Art Prize is an annual competition organised by Mosman Council that aims to encourage the creative talents of young, aspiring and emerging artists whilst providing a showcase for their works. It was initiated in 1988 by the internationally renowned artist and local resident Ken Done AM. The Prize is open to all young people aged 12-21 years and is one of the richest youth art prizes in Australia.
