Sculpt Nature -Applications Open


The second annual Sculpt Nature Competition is set to take place from 18-27 October this year in partnership with the Nelson Arts Festival! 

Sculpt Nature was first launched in 2022 as a 9-day eco-sculpture symposium and competition hosted by the Brook Waimārama Sanctuary. The aim of the competition is to bring together the creative arts and conservation sectors through a symposium event that focuses on using natural materials. The sculptors’ work will inspire a greater connection between the public and the natural environment while spreading the message of ecosystem restoration to the wider community.

Artist application forms can be found here

We are pleased to share that this year, all artists will receive a $1,000 guaranteed stipend and an opportunity to win an $8,000 total prize fund

The closing date for applications is 30 June 2024.
