The only contemporary art prize in Aotearoa New Zealand with ecology at its core.

Artists were invited to research and respond to the Tāmaki Estuary, to underscore the ecological value of this vital waterway and encourage action against its pollution.

Come along to see the exhibition. 

The 14th Estuary Art and Ecology Award this year judged by Monique Jansen and with almost 100 entries making it the most popular ever.

The opening ceremony and prize giving is on Saturday 4 July, 2.30pm and will surely be an event not to be missed.

With a total prize pool of $8,300, the winning artworks are intelligent and innovative responses to ecology in the field of contemporary art.

This year's judge, Monique Jansen, is an Auckland-based artist and Head of Visual Arts at the Auckland University of Technology.

She has exhibited nationally and internationally, and her work is held in many public and private collections.

She was the winner of the inaugural Aotearoa/New Zealand National Parkin Drawing Prize in 2013.

Monique is a committed environmentalist and organic gardener; working on transforming her home and community into a model of resilience, sustainable living, and active citizenship.
