NZPPA 2015 is a huge success
Dr Anne Kirker selected the grand award for Nicole Sanders-O'Shea and three 'merits'.
The Gala Opening of the NZPPA in the Hamilton Gardens was a huge success - all finalists were invited to hear Anne discussing the finalist's works - then the announcements of the winner and the merits, and then nearly a thousand people partied in the Pavilion.
