What is Chroma Art Awards?

Hosted alongside Chromacon Arts Festival, the Chroma Art Award recognises and acknowledges the best fresh original artworks from New Zealand indie creatives.

All entries are judged on the follow criteria:

  • Originality
  • Effective use of visual storytelling to communicate themes, mood and narratives
  • Overall impact of the work
  • Technical skill
  • Creative use of the medium

The awards are open to artists from all ages and backgrounds, and are judged by a panel of expert artists relevant to each category.

In 2013, we established the illustration and comic arts categories awarding 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners across both.

In 2015, we awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners across illustration and comic arts as well as 6 finalists.
