Eye on Nature Creative Arts

Saturday 28 September - Saturday 13 October, 2024

Teaching tamariki to love the environment through art!


Eye on Nature Creative Arts is the Beautification Trust's annual art competition for South and East Auckland kindergarten and primary school students.


Students are challenged to create art around the Eye on Nature theme, making use of sustainable materials and re-purposed waste.

The judges assess the artworks based on their interpretation of the theme, use of materials, the artist’s statement about their work, originality, innovation, construction and effort. The winning schools and kindergartens are awarded cash prizes and art supply vouchers, with a total prize pool worth $2,550!

All entries will be displayed in the professional exhibition space at the Auckland Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre during the October school holidays.

Enter the competition

Eye on Nature Creative Arts is open to South and East Auckland kindergartens and primary schools.

Home schooled students or students entering independently of their school are also welcome to enter.

There is no cost to enter. We believe all children should have access to environmental and sustainability education, so participation in this programme is free of charge.

Entries are now closed for 2023. Entries for 2024 will open in Term 3. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
