Midland MRI National Youth Art Award 2018

The Midland MRI National Youth Art Award is open for entries again and we cannot wait to see this year’s submissions!

The amazing Anna Mile’s has come on board to judge this year’s event and we are thrilled to be working with her. Owner and operator of a contemporary dealer gallery (the Anna Mile’s gallery in Auckland), she is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about contemporary art in Aotearoa.

Again, we have seven awards to present: The Midland MRI Grand Prize of $2,000, the Breakthrough Artist award ($1,000), Emerging Young Artist award ($500), the Print award ($500), the Abstract award ($500), the Photography award ($500), and the People’s Choice award ($250).

This is an excellent opportunity to participate in a national art award whether this is the first time you have had the opportunity to exhibit or you have done it before. An exhibition of the finalists will be shown at ArtsPost in Hamilton from September 7th – October 8th. We look forward to seeing your entries as they roll in, entries close July 27th.
