The national drawing competition, attracting a major prize of $25,000, was launched by philanthropist and arts patron, Chris Parkin eight years ago. Ten highly commended prizes worth $500.00 each will also be awarded to artists as an added incentive.

Poppy Lekner from Wellington has been announced the winner of the 2020 Parkin Drawing Prize.

Poppy’s work ‘Forward Slash’, an A4 drawing using the left and right index finger on a Brother typewriter, was chosen as the winner from an impressive 482 entries nationwide and 76 finalists at the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts’ Academy Galleries.

All the artworks will be for sale giving admirers and collectors the opportunity to purchase some wonderful pieces which are unlikely to be seen again, given many of the finalists are not represented in any gallery.
