Rainbow of judges

Resene has brought together the design and colour knowledge of Sylvia Sandford, John Walsh, Peta Tearle and the colourful personality of Jackie Clarke to judge its inaugural Resene Total Colour Awards programme, designed to celebrate excellence in colour design. With over 140 entries to choose from, the calibre of judging panel of the Resene Total Colour Awards meant that debate was robust and lively during the judging process.

Designer, paint finisher, writer, tutor, public speaker, visual merchandiser, decorator and cook captures the 30 year career of Sylvia Sandford.  Project inspired with an eclectic career, Sylvia pursues her passion for house and home throughout New Zealand.  Sylvia has a long history with Resene and was the Resene Colour Ambassador for many years encouraging decorators to embrace colour in their projects.

John Walsh is the managing editor of AGM, publisher of the leading design titles Urbis, Architecture NZ, Houses and ProDesign. John has edited Architecture NZ since 2002, and was launch editor of Houses. He is the author of New New Zealand Houses (Random House, 2007); his next book, another collaboration with architectural photographer Patrick Reynolds for Random House, is about New Zealand architects’ own houses and will be published later this year.

Auckland based colourist Peta Tearle is recognised for her distinctive approach to colour design.  A key aspect of her practice is collaborative work with architects and interior designers.  And as an artist she continues to experiment with the medium she revels in, colour.

Jackie Clarke gave up house cleaning when she discovered people would pay to hear her sing. Jackie’s instantly recognisable from judging NZ Idol and has now brought her judging talents and colourful personality to the Resene Total Colour Awards. 

The Resene Total Colour Awards will be announced in Auckland at the Resene Total Colour Awards and The Range 2011/12 launch night on 29 July 2010.
