The closing date for entries is Friday the 24th of August at 4pm and any Auckland youth at primary or intermediate school can enter and be in to win one of $10,000 worth of prizes for themselves and their school.
“The Natural Masterpieces Big Day Art competition is a wonderful way for Auckland’s young people to be inspired by our region’s natural beauty just as famous New Zealand artists and musicians have been,” says Councillor Bill Burrill, Chairman of the ARC Parks and Recreation Committee.
