It attracts approximately 500 entries from all over New Zealand. To be eligible, artists must belong to the Ashburton Society of Arts or to a kindred society. 

Artists are allowed to enter two paintings, three miniature paintings plus three applied art & craft entries or 2 photographs if desired. Size restrictions apply to all categories and will be set out on the conditions of entry.
