The main objective of The Lapita Visual Art Competition is to encourage participants to learn about the Lapita Culture and in particular the pottery making practice of the Lapita people in the Pacific. This art competition is not limited to any form of medium but  has to include something about Lapita, whether it be designs from the pots, artifacts or any other aspect of the Lapita culture.
