Calling all South Auckland Artists!

We are proud to bring back the Chorus Cabinet Art Competition to South Auckland for the fifth time. 

We’re seeking up and coming artists who live, work or study in South Auckland to beautify one of six selected Chorus Cabinets and get paid to do so. 

Artists selected will be paid $1,000 (excl GST) per cabinet plus up to $100 will be provided for materials.

If you know an artist or are pretty handy with a paint brush yourself and want to showcase your talent on one of the listed cabinets below, please get in touch with us today.

·      Howick – 145 Cascades Rd 

·      Franklin – 4 Beatty Road, Pukekohe
