2022 marks the third year of the programme which sees recipients gifted $15,000, alongside a partnership with a senior artist mentor from the alumni of Arts Foundation associates.
The selection process focuses on awarding creatives with outstanding potential who want to start careers in a variety of arts disciplines. A financial, mentoring and resource support system will be designed to have a significant impact on their growth and development as artists, helping them to start a career.
The Arts Foundation is also offering a new Springboard Award dedicated to a Ngāi Tahu kaihautoi (upcoming artists). This is the first year of a new partnership supported by Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu.
2022 Springboard nominations close on 7 December. Find the selection criteria here.
