  • Cleveland National Art Awards - Call for Entries

Entries for the 2023 Otago Art Society’s biennial Cleveland National Awards are now open. With a total prize pool of over $15000,  this prestigious art award is not to be missed. Entries close midnight on Friday 10th March.

These Awards have been made possible through the generous sponsorship of the Cleveland Charitable Foundation, Crew Recruitment, Winsor and Newton, Alex Campbell’s Menswear, Highgate Partners and Moray Gallery.

The Awards will take place at the iconic Dunedin Railway Station, home of the Otago Art Society. The exhibition will be open to the public every day from 6th May to 3rd June 2023.

The  Cleveland National Awards are open to many visual artistic disciplines from artists residing in New Zealand with initial entry via digital submission. Selection of works for the final exhibition and the winners of each category will be made by a panel of judges from the art community.

The OAS aims to make this event a celebration of New Zealand's artistic diversity and we need your help to achieve this goal. This is a biennial award so don't miss your chance to participate!
