zonta ashburton female art awards 2023

ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION

DATES & TIMES

Entries: 5 September - 11 November

Open Daily: 10am - 4pm

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 2023 Premier Award recipient will win a cash prize of $3,500, along with a special opportunity to hold a solo exhibition at the Gallery in the following year. This opportunity to create a new body of work for a fully curated and professionally installed exhibition will be greatly valuable to the recipients artistic careers.

The awards will also have a separate Young Generation category open to female artists between the ages of 16 and 20. This award will acknowledge the creative youth in Canterbury with a cash prize of $500.

Entries will be shortlisted by a panel of judges comprised of three art sector professionals. The awards will be announced by the judges on the opening night on Friday 10 March 2023.

ZAFAA23 entry forms are available here.
