2019 NATIONAL YOUTH ART AWARDS
The Waikato Society of Arts is proud to open the National Youth Art Awards for the 10th year on Thursday, 18th July at 5.30pm in the Artspost Galleries. The number of entries for the NYAA have been growing every year, from throughout New Zealand and have been of such a high standard it is the WSA's pleasure again to showcase the 83 young, talented finalists we have in Aotearoa. There are two age categories, 15-19 years and 20-25 years. Midland MRI is our main sponsor for these awards and are generously sponsoring two $2000 prizes to the winning entry in both age categories. There are two $500 prizes in each category for Highly Commended and two $500 prizes for Merit awards. Plus the Print Council of NZ has generously sponsored an overall Print award of $500. Gordon Harris, is again sponsoring our $250 People's Choice Award Prize, so make sure you cast your vote for your favourite artist.
