Student Competitions
Ceramics NZ - Tertiary Students Competition 2015

At regular intervals Ceramics NZ 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. Students are invited to enter three images of a work that they have completed unaided in the course of their studies.

50th Anniversary Tertiary Students Competition 2015

Images of the workwill be displayed online where judges from each on the NZP administrative regions can allocate points. Ceramics NZ members will also be able to choose which of the contestants should win the Members Choice Award.

This year the following awards are offered:

  • Premier Award of $750
  • four Merit Awards of $250
  • a NZP Members Choice Award of $350

All award winners will also be offered a free Student Membership of Ceramics NZ for one year.


One judge has been chosen from each Ceramics NZ region. Each of these judges will allocate online points between 1 and 10 for each entrant. These points will be totalled to find the Premier Award and the Merit Awards.

In addition each member of Ceramics NZ may login and choose the student they think should be awarded a Merit.

Winners will be announced on this website on December 16.

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.
