ArtsHub’s 2022 Archibald, Wynne and Sulman predictions

Article by Gina Fairley

Every year we take a stab at a bit of crystal ball gazing across the crop of finalists for the prestigious Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes.

This year 115 finalists will vie for Australia’s top prizes, with 58 entries by men, 54 by women (a literal flip of those gender stats for last year), and in a first, one non-binary artist recorded and two collaboration.

This year, 816 entries were received for the 2022 Archibald Prize (down on last year which received 938 entries), with 52 making it into the finalist cut. The record stands with 1,068 entries set in 2020.

ArtsHub predicts NAS alumni Juz Kitson for the Wynne Prize and NAS student Sophie Victoria for the Sulman Prize.
