Trust Waikato National Contemporary Art Award
The Trust Waikato National Contemporary Art Award is an opportunity for New Zealand artists to appear in an overview of national artistic practice and feature in a major exhibition within the Waikato Museum.
Among our national art community this Art Award, established by the Waikato Society of Arts in 2000, and sponsored by Trust Waikato, is regarded as one of New Zealand’s premiere contemporary art events. Prize $15,000. Each year, the Award also gives the opportunity to view New Zealand’s contemporary art scene through the eyes of a respected curator. Dr Leonhard Emmerling, St Paul Street Gallery, AUT, Auckland; is this year’s nationally and internationally acclaimed adjudicator of the Award.
