Eden Arts Young Artists Award

The Eden Arts Young Artists Awards is an annual event which last month was held between September 22 and 25.The awards are open to artists between the ages of 16 and 25 who live or attend school within the wider Mt Eden area.“The aim of the Young Artists Awards is to provide a platform for young artists to exhibit their work, to place it in a professional gallery environment and to encourage adventurous experimentation and creativity.” (http://www.edenarts.co.nz/Young_Artists_Awards.php).

This year Eden Arts received 78 submissions which were judged by Allan Smith, senior lecturer at Elam School of Fine Arts, The University of Auckland. Congratulations goes to Whitecliffe Bachelor of Fine Arts student Michaela Challis, who won the award for Best Photography with her entry, entitled King Collection.
