Christchurch Awards

AWARDED! Friday 8th March


It’s a wrap for Christchurch! Adjudication went smoothly prior to and during the VIP Preview session at the wonderful Te Pae Event Centre on Friday 8th March with the Christchurch Finalist and two Highly Commended Artists announced by Lead Judge Karl Chitham at 8pm on Opening Night.

Some short speeches were made - followed by the ceremonial removal of the winningworks from the artists own ‘walls’ (much to their surprised delight) and their prominent placement on the official Stuff Gold Award wall where they remained until the Show closed at 5pm Sunday 10 March.

The Judges were impressed by the quality of the works exhibited right across the Christchurch Art Show from entrants and non-entrants alike and felt that the three eventually chosen from the entrants well represented this quality.

Four Finalists are being selected for the Art Aotearoa Gold Award for Art Excellence – one from each of the locations of New Zealand’s four best Art Shows.

And if you are looking for that special artwork then do check out all of the Award entries at the location closest to you as they do tend to sell out first.
