Wearable Art Competition

Attention Creatives!

Enter your Christmas themed wearable art design into the Heart of Christmas Wearable Art Competition and you could be one of 20 creatives who will receive $500 and a mannequin to bring your creations to life and be exhibited throughout the city centre this Christmas. 

Inspired by Wearable Arts, this dynamic showcase of talent will provide the public with something very different and unique in Downtown Tauranga, celebrating Christmas and art through installation.

The judges will look at the following criteria and how your design meets the criteria:

  • Christmas themed
  • Consideration of sustainability and use of recycled/upcycled materials
  • Originality
  • Creativity
  • Consideration of the design ‘look’ at night and during the day
