In 2021, in partnership with Arts Front, we created a bespoke digital platform where the Digital Arts Market takes place. We are partnering again with Arts Front, building and adding new features onto the platform for 2022.

To apply to present at the 2022 PANNZ Arts Market, you will need to submit an EOI application form.  As a successful applicant, you will have a profile made for you on the Arts Front digital platform, where you can take part in the Digital Arts Market. All sessions for the 2022 Digital Arts Market will all take place via the platform, so you will simply log-in and tune in!

The Digital Arts Market will take place 28 February - 3 March 2022. This will include pitches, international showcases and one-minute pitches.

We are also partnering again with Auckland Live, enabling us to live-stream the PANNZ Arts Market and our lead up events and with Creative New Zealand to support the creation and presentation of digital showcases and a virtual programme for international Te Manu Ka Tau delegates.


The In Person Arts Market (alert level dependent) will be held in Auckland, on Friday 4 March 2022, concluding our week of the PANNZ Arts Market 2022. We will have a focus on networking and panel discussions, and allow further discussion between artists and presenters, face to face. It is important you attend this valuable day of coming together.

It is strongly recommended that all artists applying to pitch and showcase read the application guidelines first. See the full application Arts Market 2022 Guidelines.  See also the FAQs—application process.
