FACT is calling for all visual artists to enter its annual Spring Show. Prizes will be offered for the entries which best illustrate this year's theme: Franklin Faces.

This is a unique opportunity for local artists to submit their work for exhibition in a gallery space of international standard and have the public view and judge their work. With no limitations in this competition; you are free to express yourself in whatever medium you choose. It is about utilizing the gallery for your message and making your mark and there is endless inspiration to be found in the beautiful rural area of Franklin.

We are hoping to attract people to communicate to us elements you, as an artist, see in Franklin and visualize your message in a memorable way that would allow the audience to see something new. “This is a great opportunity to show us what or who are ‘Franklin Faces’ interpreted by artists. This should be a very interesting exhibition” says Aliah Jan, General Manager of FACT.

Don’t hold back! The more diverse and plentiful the submissions the more the public floor can be open to debate, discuss and enjoy how you perceive the identity of this district. Think big. Visit the gallery and discuss ideas with like-minded people.

If you would like to discuss any great ideas, feel free to contact Suzette, FACT’s Gallery and Promotions Officer on (09) 238 8899 or info.fact@xtra.co.nz. “I am literally waiting for someone to blow us away with something special. There is a huge pool of undiscovered talent in this district and I see this as the ultimate way to unearth the hidden gems.” says Suzette.

First Prize: $500
Second Prize: $300
The first prize of $500 and second prize of $300 are generously sponsored by The Dentist at 166 King Street, Pukekohe.
Public Choice Prize: one night of luxury accommodation for two at The Heritage Hotel and Spa du Vin
