Six student entries will be selected from each school and judged by an independent judge (or judges) appointed by Eden Arts. The Award is open to full-time undergraduates and there are no restrictions on medium. The Overall Winner will receive $5,000. Three Highly Commended will receive $1,000 each.
Elam, Unitec, AUT and Whitecliffe will rotate as the host institution, with Elam hosting the inaugural Award 2011 followed in order by Unitec, AUT and Whitecliffe.
The invitation-only Opening Evening and Awards Ceremony hosted by Elam is on Thursday July 28. The exhibition is open for public viewing
