Will it be your artwork that features on the next cover of Te Pānui Rūnaka?

Each issue, we showcase a piece of artwork created by a Ngāi Tahu artist.

While we already have an existing collection, we would like to add to it and ask that whānau send in their artwork. A submission should include a good quality photograph of a painting, sculpture, or a drawing – the options are endless.

Each year we publish 11 issues of the magazine, so we cannot guarantee that each and every piece will be used. However we will endeavour to use artwork from as many rūnanga, as we can.

The end of the year is fast approaching and we are already thinking of potential covers for 2016.
If you would like your artwork to be considered, simply send the images (as attached JPEG files) to [email protected]

We look forward to receiving all your artwork, whānau.
