The late Philip Vela and the Philip Vela Family Trust are
once again providing the incredibly generous prize money of $20,000. Without the Velas continued support of this
major event, it would not be possible to showcase some of New Zealand’s emerging
and established artists.
The 2016 judge and selector is Dr Zara
Stanhope. A woman of many skills and
attributes, Dr Stanhope is currently the Principal Curator and Head of Programmes
at the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamāki.
She is also the Adjunct
Professor at AUT’s School of Art and Design.
