This annual non-acquisitive award is dedicated to excellence across contemporary and traditional painting and drawing and 3D genres in alternate years. The award has developed over 30 years and sits credibly within the New Zealand arts community. A high standard of work is selected to form the exhibition from nationwide entries by three pre-selection judges working independently, and offers over $20,000 in prizes.
For participants, the award offers professional development opportunities to artists by showcasing their 3D practice to peers, collectors, critics, museum curators, the media and the community at large.
