This award exhibition presented by The Zonta Club of Ashburton in partnership with the Ashburton Art Gallery showcases the works of emerging and mid-career female artists based in Canterbury. The award seeks to raise the status of female visual artists working in the wider Canterbury area and acknowledges excellence in emerging and mid-career female artists as well as providing a platform for female youth.

The ZAFAA 2018 premier award recipient will win a cash prize along with a special opportunity to hold a solo exhibition at the Gallery in the following year.
