From Standing Room Only, 2:47 pm on 27 September 2015

Mike Gourley checks out this year's IHC Art Awards and talks with national judges, Boh Runga and Dylan Horrocks. He also interviews the event organiser Penny Harding - about the winning work, and IHC National Communications manager, Gina Rogers, about the glossy and stylish booklet she edited, marking a decade of the Awards from their beginnings in 2004 through to last year. The sponsorship has now been taken up by the Holdsworth Family Trust. Auckland artist Chris Wills won the IHC Art Awards 2015 and $5000 with an intricate map of New Zealand embroidered on linen, while teenage Gisborne artist Keitha Taylor is this year's People's Choice winner. She entered a pen and watercolour pencil drawing Baby and Mother Giraffe.
