Each year, the trustees of the Art Gallery of NSW judge the Archibald and Wynne, but invite an artist to judge the Sulman. This year's judge is Khadim Ali.

In response to COVID-19, The Art Gallery of NSW has introduced protocols to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of visitors, staff and volunteers at the exhibition.
