A world first: artist applications close early

In an unprecedented move, artists applications were closed early due to high demand.

This took us by complete surprise and we are delighted at the high interest.

After fourteen years as New Zealand’s largest and most popular show of its kind, it’s great to see that artists recognise the show as a leading platform to showcase their art.
