Who are you hoping to attract to this project - contributors, sponsors, artists, buyers, future supporters, public, trade, peers?
What is your desired outcome from this event - short term and long term, for yourselves, entrants, audience, industry, charity, company, group, wider community, country?
Who qualifies as an entrant - amateurs, professionals, students, NZ residents, NZ citizens, anyone?

The Judging Process
How will you ensure the judging is a fair, balanced
and respected process?
Who do you hope to attract as sponsors and event partners? Will work be sold and if so, technically by whom on what financial basis? What financial management structure do you have in place to account for the multitude of transactions involved? What are entry fees intended to be used for? Cost of entries for a) organisers b) entrants?
Lateral thinking about promotional opportunities in
partnership with sponsors or supporters can enhance the outcome of the event for all.
