From a list of over 400 applicants, a shortlist of 17 artists were chosen by an elite panel of judges overseen by Dr. Aron Harilela, CEO and Chairman of Harilela Hotels Ltd. Artwork from the shortlisted artists adorn the walls of our hotel lobby, private dining room, and The Hari Bar in an exclusive exhibition until February 2023.
The three finalists were announced at a VIP award event at The Hari on 17 November 2022. The overall winner was awarded with a cash prize of £10,000, generously donated by Dr. Aron Harilela, and the two runners have been chosen to become the next ‘Artists in Residence’ based at The Hari from January to February 2023, followed by an exhibition of their work at the hotel. All three finalists will have their work exhibited at The Hari’s newest hotel in Hong Kong.
