APPLICANTS WANTED FOR THE 2022 R.T NELSON AWARDS FOR SCULPTURE
$20,000 IN PRIZES
Celebrating small scale sculpture
Sculpture, as in any art form, has the power to evoke strong emotions and transform lives.
With the myriad of materials that sculptors use, 3D art expresses itself and engages with its audiences uniquely from other art forms. It provides rich experiences as the audience views artworks from different angles and contemplates size, texture, weight, balance, colour, medium, technique, pattern and meaning.
The RT Nelson Awards for Sculpture celebrates the diversity of sculpture and their creators with this prestigious award
One premier prize of $15,000
Five highly commended prizes of $1,000
Application closing dates extended
We fully appreciate that the impact of the Covid outbreak on Auckland, Waikato and Northland has restricted access to materials and services, making it difficult for artists to commit to applying for this award.
Therefore we are extending the closing dates for applications from November 3 to January 30.
Please refer to the updated diagram below for all the new dates.
