2015 Canadian Young Artist Portrait Competition.

The Young Artist Competition in fine art portraiture is an on-line competition and is open to all Canadian visual young artists between the ages of 8-18.

 "It is becoming increasingly difficult to choose the winners in both competitions. The quality of artwork is exceptional and I am so proud of all of the participants. I can't wait to see what they will achieve in the future. I am convinced that these young artists will continue the painting tradition and specially that of the portraiture and for that I thank them all. I hope to see more of their beautiful work next year! Congratulations!" Irena Korosec

“It was astounding to see such quality of work among the kid and youth portraits in the 2015 competition. Each year it becomes increasingly more difficult to choose winners when faced with such aptitude among the participating young artists. Good luck to all in their future endeavours"Jean Harding

"It is both a privilege and a curse to judge your artwork. A privilege because I get to see and experience your wonderful work; a curse because I have to choose the best work...in my opinion. Those are important words to remember. Stay true to yourself, keep painting and drawing and enjoy the ride! Congratulations to each and everyone of you!”Jane Kavanagh

“I am happy to see many amazing young artists ,who are passionate to fine art in our digital times. Harmony and greatness of your vision is absolutely unique. Keep creating your wonderful masterpieces and enjoy your artistic path. I believe that you have a very special gift, called talent”. Veronica Kvassetskaia Tsyglan
