The Parkin Drawing Prize is Aotearoa New Zealand’s premier award for drawing. It promotes drawing in all its forms – as discovery, a testing of ideas, and decision making. Entry is free - koha is appreciated. All the artworks are for sale, giving admirers and collectors the opportunity to purchase some wonderful pieces. 

Founded by arts patron, businessman and philanthropist Chris Parkin, the national drawing prize is now into its seventh year and has grown into a well recognised and not to be missed competition. From approximately 500 entries, a portfolio of around 80 works are chosen by a judging panel for the annual exhibition.

For artists of all ages and abilities, the competition has come become an annual feature in the New Zealand Art calendar.

“Over the years I’ve learned that, at least within the artistic community, the sort of whole boundary of what we would term drawing is actually much wider than I would have probably originally thought. It’s what makes this award so unique. Every year I see innovation and difference, and every year there's something new. I truly am excited to see what we have in store for 2019,” said Chris Parkin.

Previous recipients of the award include Monique Jansen (2013) with AO Folded Moire Drawing ; Douglas Stichbury (2014) with Observer, Gabrielle Amodeo (2015) with The Floor We Walk On, Hannah Beehre’s Catastrophe (2016), Kirsty Lillico’s carpet installation State Block (2017) and Jacqui Colley for Long Echo last year.

‘The Parkin Prize has proven unequivocally that drawing is an integral part of the artistic landscape. Time and time again the award has altered our concept of drawing and the 2019 award will stretch the boundaries once again.’ said Greg Chaston, President New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts.
