Dawson Hall Mark Watercolour Award

In September 1964, Sir Henry Kelliher, as chairman of directors of the Dawson Printing Co. Ltd., announced a watercolour competition sponsored by his company. Prizes of £200 (first) and 50 (second) were offered for the best watercolours submitted, depicting a subject of the artist's choice relative to New Zealand and not painted in an abstract manner. The competition is planned to be held in Auckland in April 1965. The judge or judges were not named in the original announcement.
