Judging panel

The Resene Total Colour Awards 2013 judging panel brought together the design and colour knowledge of Sylvia Sandford, John Walsh and Resene Total Colour Award 2012 winner, Henry Crothers. With an extensive array of entries to choose from, the calibre of judging panel of the Resene Total Colour Awards meant that debate was robust and lively during the judging process.

Henry Crothers is a landscape architect and urban designer and a member of the judging panel

His recent experience includes city centre streetscapes and public open spaces and new waterfront spaces as part of the on-going redevelopment of Auckland's award winning Wynyard Quarter.
