Last years’ Best School Mural (Primary) created with Resene paints. This is Turangawaewae – the rivers were chosen by staff, whanau and students to represent the new house names. “The rivers connect us to this place Hauraki, our turangawaewae.” 

Can anyone enter? 

Yes! Entry is open to all ages and all mural types, so get your creative juices and paintbrushes fired up. Entries just need to be murals painted in Australia or New Zealand using Resene paints, and need to have the small Resene sign permanently affixed on/immediately next to the mural. 

How are entries judged? 

Murals will be judged on their creativity, uniqueness, the impact/improvement they make to the area and the general finish/style. Mural designs are judged on the impact they are likely to make to the area they are intended for, the likelihood that the design will be able to be reproduced well and the intended location of the mural (e.g. where it is going, why and does the mural design suit that location). What are you waiting for? Happy creating.
