We have been the proud host of the Pat Hanly Creativity Awards since 2002. The awards, supported by  Principal Partner AUT, acknowledge Pat Hanly’s outstanding contribution to New Zealand contemporary art and his passion for art education and supporting young artists.

Award nominations are open to Heads of Departments and Art Teachers of Visual Arts in the greater Auckland area, nominating a maximum of two senior students who have demonstrated outstanding creativity, imagination and commitment to the visual arts. Nominated students are asked to submit an artist’s statement and an image of an artwork to complete the entry. Recipients of the Pat Hanly Creativity Awards, along with their whānau and teachers, are honoured at a gala event at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki. Recipients will also receive a goodie bag from our supporting event partner, Gordon Harris.

Nominations are now due Wed 17 August. If you have any questions, please email: education@aucklandartgallery.com
