Only two days remain for artists working in the areas of sculpture, installation and contemporary craft to submit works for the 2018 Molly Morpeth Canaday Award – 3D.

Organisers say they are already seeing entries streaming through from artists working across a wide range of three-dimensional art fields, and the flow is expected to increase in the lead up to the entry deadline this Friday.

The Molly Morpeth Canaday Award - 3D looks to recognise the quality and diversity of three-dimensional work in New Zealand and generate discussion around practices.

Entrants may submit up to three separate works to the Molly Morpeth Canaday website and are required to upload digital images of each work, with a supporting artist statement, if they wish.

The 2018 Award boasts a prize pool of $20,000, thanks to the generous support of local and national sponsors, and presents a fantastic opportunity for artists nationwide.

Entries can be made until the end of Friday, December 1.
