Estuary Art and Ecology Prize 2018

A quick note to report that I have been invited to present this year’s Estuary Art and Ecology Award. A tradition at Uxbridge Arts and Culture in Auckland, the Estuary Prize is Aotearoa New Zealand’s only art prize dedicated to contemporary art with ecology interests at its heart. More info on this year’s competition is here including details of the prizes and submission guidelines.

Last’s year’s first place work was by Kohl Tyler-Dunshea, selected by judge Ane Tonga.
