Mural masterpieces announced

12 Dec 2013

The winners of the 2013 Resene Mural Masterpieces competition were announced recently, with a range of stunning murals from schools, community groups and professionals. Subject matter ranged from native flora and fauna to landscapes and even a rocket. 

This year, Auckland Girls Grammar won the secondary school section with this mural, which links into an Amnesty International campaign about using street art to campaign for Women's Rights. The students also wanted to celebrate the efforts of Malala Youfsazai, the Pakistani 16-year-old girl, who campaigned for girls' education and was shot by the Taliban.

Other category winners were Apanui Primary School, Stanmore Bay Beach for the community section and Emily Roberts for the professional section. For more wonderful murals click here.
