Held annually around the Fieldays event, the Fieldays No.8 Wire National Art Award celebrates innovation by challenging artists to create artworks using No.8 wire, an iconic Kiwi agricultural product.

The award, hosted by Waikato Museum, culminates in a public exhibition in May/June at Hamilton’s ArtsPost. The award draws on an iconic farm product and translates this through talent and ingenuity into an art form.

Entrants are invited to utilise agricultural-based materials and No.8 wire to create sculptural artworks. The online entry form enables streamlined entry, multiple images, online payment and a blind selection of the finalists by the judge:
