Winners announced for the Vanguard Awards 2021

Whitecliffe created the Vanguard Awards & Exhibition in 2021 to discover and highlight emerging talent within New Zealand, and to allow them to showcase their talents on a national scale.

We received a high volume of entries, making it difficult for our judges to select a winner. But after much deliberation, we are excited to announce our inaugural winners across our three categories: Fine Art, Design & Photo Media.

Vanguard Exhibition

Due to the current COVID lockdown, we are reviewing when we can host Vanguard Exhibition. The extended lockdown has made it difficult for us to host events, so we are reviewing options/dates. We will keep you informed.

We would like to thank all the students that participated in the Vanguard Awards & Exhibition in 2021.
