Calling all artists…

The NZ Academy of Fine Arts and the Parkin Foundation are pleased to announce that entries are now open for the 2019 Parkin Drawing Prize. Founded by arts patron, businessman and philanthropist Chris Parkin, the national drawing prize is now into its seventh year and has grown into a well-recognised competition not to be missed in the New Zealand arts scene. There’s a major prize of $20,000 as well as 10 highly commended prizes each worth $500.

The President of the Academy, Greg Chaston, says “The Parkin Prize has proven unequivocally that drawing is an integral part of the artistic landscape. Time and time again the award has altered our concept of drawing and the 2019 award will stretch the boundaries once again.”
