Seeking further nominations for Creative New Zealand Arts Pasifika Awards 2014


Creative New Zealand is seeking further nominations in two categories for its 2014 Arts Pasifika Awards, which celebrate excellence and innovation in Pacific arts in New Zealand.

The Senior Pacific Artist Award ($10,000) recognises the contribution of a senior established Pacific artist in maintaining or developing their artform in New Zealand. Internationally renowned opera singer Jonathan Lemalu won this award last year.

The Iosefa Enari Memorial Award ($4,000) recognises the contribution of the late Iosefa Enari to the arts, in particular his pioneering role in Pacific opera. This award supports the career development of an individual Pacific singer, musician or composer across all classical genres and career stages. International musician/harpist Natalia Mann was the 2013 recipient.

The awards offer the public a chance to acknowledge artists who best characterise the richness and diversity of high-quality Pacific art in this country.

Nominations can be made by members of the public, and artists can also nominate themselves in the relevant category.

The closing date for nominations is 5pm Monday 11 August 2014. Nomination guidelines and forms can be downloaded directly from www.creativenz.govt.nz/artspasifikaawards.

An awards ceremony will be held in November 2014 in Wellington.
