America’s Cup mural design competition with $5000 up for grabs!

Help us celebrate Takapuna being the grandstand for the 36th America’s Cup with a great design here!

Channel Magazine, Benefitz and the Takapuna Beach Business Association have teamed up to produce a massive mural celebrating the 36th America’s Cup that is coming to our shore’s late this year and early next.

Action starts in mid-December with the America’s Cup World Series. The Prada Cup is held in January and February and then the main event, the America’s Cup, is on between March 6th and 21st.

The owners of a prominent building in Takapuna have provided permission to install a massive mural on the side of their building to liven up the place for the America’s Cup. This mural will be 10 metres wide by 6.5 metres high.

The neat thing is we want local creative people to come up with a vibrant design that celebrates the fact that Takapuna will be one of the prime viewing spots for the AC36 event.

Celebrating in the traditions on the America’s Cup we want this artwork to be a real contest. The winning design will not only be used on the massive mural but the designer will also win $4000 for their efforts. We will also be offering $500 prizes for two runner up designs – making a total cash prize pool of $5000! And entry is totally free!
