Sponsorship Announcement

We are very happy to be able to announce our wonderful sponsorship for the prizes of the 50th National Exhibition. We felt the 50th was a suitable milestone to offer some worthwhile prizes. Pottery or ceramic art, whatever you like to call it, has certainly come of age, and it is commendable that NZSP has grown from that first NZ Studio Potters Exhibition in 1957, and has managed to keep National exhibitions going on a nearly annual basis (or a few counting mistakes along the way)

We are most grateful to all our sponsors, namely:
The James Wallace Arts Trust for the Acquisition Supreme Award of $5000
The Blumhardt Foundation for the Non-Functional Excellence Award, $2000
The NZPotters’ Award , $1500
The NZPotters’ Corporate Members Merit Award, $750
Canterbury Potters Canta Clay People’s Choice Award, $500

Sponsoring the Tertiary Student Exhibition are:
Excellence Award: South Street Gallery- materials to $500
Innovation Award: Colin Kirk Photographics,
Merit Award: Capital Books- book voucher to $100
Merit Award: NZP Student membership

I hope this will make everyone want to enter one or the other exhibition.
