Background to the Competition:
Morrie Gold was born in 1917 in Warsaw, Poland and immigrated to Australia in 1937.
Always a lover of the arts, his work was furthered by his artistic wife, Marie. As an art benefactor he contributed to the National Art Gallery of Victoria. His interest in fostering art in Jewish youth was prompted by watching his grandson's artistic abilities developing. He realised that to encourage the interest and confidence of children in art there must be interaction with the public.
Having been a member of B'nai B'rith for some time, Morrie felt it was the right organisation to fulfil his wish of running an Annual Jewish Youth Art Competition.
Morrie Gold died in May, 1993. This annual Jewish Youth Art Competition was established through a bequest left by Mr. Gold to B'nai B'rith.
B'nai B'rith has taken up the challenge to organise and hold the exhibition each year. The competition aims to promote artistic competence and a sense of unity among youth of various sections of the Jewish community.
It is open to Jewish youth between the ages of 11 and 18. Entries are divided into age groups 11 to 13, 14 and 15, 16 to 18. In each age group there are four categories, namely, painting and drawing, mixed media, digital, and sculpture. A fifth category of photography is open to artists aged 16-18. Students enter from Jewish day schools such as Beth Rivkah Ladies College, Bialik College, Leibler Yavneh College, Mt Scopus Memorial College, the King David School, Yeshivah College as well as students from state schools and other independent schools.
The artworks are judged by a panel of professionals in the arts industry and prizes are offered in all categories and age groups. Numerous prizes will be awarded including an overall prize and a Jewish Theme Prize. Approximately 150 artworks are submitted annually.
