Calling all artists! You have until 29 February to get your entries in for The Coca-Cola Easter Show Art Awards 2012.
Open to artists of all ages, amateur and professional, The Coca-Cola Easter Show Art Awards is New Zealand’s largest open art competition.
This year we are especially honoured to announce in celebration of the Queens Diamond Jubilee, the Coca-Cola Easter Show has been granted the use of the official emblem to commemorate this historic event. All competition winners will receive a commemorative rosette with the official emblem.
With a total prize pool of over $40,000 and a wide range of categories open to artists of all levels of experience and expertise, the competition attracts around 2,000 entries.
There are painting and photography sections, along with printmaking, ceramics and pottery, glass, wearable glass and woodcraft. Also included is a section for youth aged 10-18 years in the painting and ceramic sections.
This year’s competition theme is ‘Today and Tomorrow’ which has been chosen to continue on from last years theme ‘Past and Present’.
All entries will be on display for the duration of The Coca-Cola Easter Show which runs from 5-9 April 2012 at the ASB Showgrounds, with most pieces also up for sale at reasonable prices.
