How to Enter You may submit one artwork. Please have the title, dimensions, up to two photographs (maximum file size 5MB) and a brief description of your artwork (maximum 100 words) ready before you begin the entry process. Framing your artwork is not required and does not give you an advantage in the judging process.
If your artwork is selected for the finalists’ exhibition, you are responsible for the delivery/postage of your artwork to the Pah Homestead. Artworks must be received no later than 5pm, Friday 14 September 2018. We will be able to accommodate students who need their artwork back for NCEA submissions.
