Ceramics NZ - Tertiary Student Competitions
Information about the 2015 Competition
At regular intervals NZ Potters has organised a competition for students enrolled in ceramics courses recognised by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority.

The competitions have been run on this website and invite students to enter three images of a work that they have completed unaided in the course of their studies.

Images of the work have been displayed on-line where judges from each on the NZP administrative regions has allocated points.

In the 2012 Student Competition a Premier Award of $500 was offered along with five Merit Awards of $200. All award winners were offered a free Student Membership of NZ Potters for one year.

If you are a tertiary student enrolled in a recognized ceramics course and would like to enter this year's competition please click the link below.

Ceramics Association of New Zealand

Registered as an incorporated society in 1965 by an enthusiastic group of potters in Wellington, New Zealand, Ceramics NZ has grown to become a significant international voice in New Zealand ceramics. The affiliation of about three dozen independent pottery clubs throughout New Zealand together with a number of corporate businesses greatly increases its effective membership. We are a national, not-for-profit organisation representing the interests of practising potters and ceramicists, students of ceramics and all those interested in New Zealand ceramics. We actively support and promote quality, and we encourage and support specialist ceramics education nationally.
