The New Zealand Painting & Printmaking Award is our country’s most valuable, acquisitive cash award for NZ (international and resident) artists in the fields of painting and printmaking. Each year the Waikato Society of Arts NZPPA team select a judge well known in the contemporary art field. Their difficult task is to select around fifty works from the several hundred submitted to compete for the $20,000 award prize which is announced at the opening night of the exhibition.

This prize is very generously sponsored by the Philip Vela Family Trust and they also purchase the winning artwork for their collection. Success in this competition has been a springboard for many of the winning artists who have moved on to significant careers in the contemporary art field.

The judge for 2014 is Courtney Johnston, Director of The Dowse Art Museum and Petone Settlers Museum, and is a well-known arts writer and commentator.

The exhibition is free to the public and features an opportunity to vote for the Peoples’ Choice award. The popular favourite wins a prize of art materials donated by Gordon Harris.
