Taranaki National Art Awards


An event not to be missed! The Annual Taranaki National Art Awards is a highlight of our region’s creative calendar. In its sixteenth year, the annual awards are a national competition offering an opportunity for artists to exhibit and sell their artwork, with the added bonus of a $12,000 prize pool. We provide a show case for local and national artists to have their work judged and exhibited. It is a unique competition as there is no pre-selection process. The awards are divided into 7 categories: Painting, Rural Taranaki, 3D, Works on Paper, Fibre Art, Toi Tu Taranaki, Photography. Last year we had 310 art entries into our Exhibition. The majority of these pieces are for sale. All entries are displayed in the exhibition at Sandfords Events Centre, which coincides with the Taranaki Rhododendron Festival. In 2017, the Awards Ceremony launches the inaugural Arts Fest South Taranaki.
