  2. You fill out the details of the artwork you will be exhibiting, and other information required by the NZ Art Show.
  3. Once the submission form is complete, you will receive confirmation of this form via email: this email is the official SUBMISSION FORM. If you don’t receive the confirmation email, please let us know

  2. Each artwork label details MUST match the details on your Submission Form: Artist Name, Name of artwork, Medium, edition number (if it’s a print or photograph) and Sale price.
  3. Artwork label: each label must be on sturdy material like cardboard – you can print out the template in the Artist resources section on our website.
  4. Flimsy paper labels can easily get ripped and make identifying your art work difficult which may result in your art not being displayed.
  5. Make the label into a swing tag on string long enough to flip over the top of artwork – attach swing tag label securely to the back of your artwork. Do not attach with sticky tape.
  6. Please feel free to attach promotional material, like business card or flyer, to the back of each artwork.

  • Your artworks are dispatched once payment is confirmed
