The Tahuna Beach Sculpture Walk Competition has been established in partnership between the Tahuna Beach Holiday Park and Arts Council Nelson as one of several activities planned to celebrate the fact that the site has been available for holidaymakers and locals to enjoy since 1926. The temporary outdoor sculpture exhibition will take place from 24 December 2016 through to 10 January 2017 in Nelson’s peak summer visitor season to offer artists a maximum audience. It is hoped that this will become a regular event, either annual or bi-annually.

Concept:    Sculptors and other artists with three-dimensional focussed practice are invited to enter work that is suitable for installation within a highly populated outdoor leisure environment. Entry is by submission of photographs or design illustrations from which a panel will select works for inclusion in the showcase.

Work may be completed and transported to the site or proposed works may be constructed on-site within the available timeframe as stated in the terms and conditions of entry. Due to the nature of the site, kinetic or works creating sound elements are unable to be accepted. Selected works will be installed on site to create a sculpture walk within the Beach Parks extensive grounds located alongside Nelson’s popular Tahunanui back beach. Work may be installed by the artist or the organisers by agreement.

Judges Choice Award of Excellence -  $5,000.00 cash prize.  All selected entries will be eligible for this award. The recipient will be decided upon by an invited judging panel and awarded to the work they consider to be of ‘excellence’. + People’s Choice Award.                                                             Organisers hope to also offer additional awards, which will be advised upon at a later date.

How to apply

Entry Forms and T's & C's available from www.acn.org.nz or call Lloyd Harwood on 03 548 4640 or 027 326 9166.
