Entries To The 2018 Ppc Imaginarium Awards Are Open!

The Call for Entry for the fourth edition of the PPC Imaginarium Awards has officially opened

The Category Winner for Industrial Design at the 2017 PPC Imaginarium Awards was Handre de la Rey for “CS Project”

The Call for Entry for the fourth edition of the PPC Imaginarium Awards has officially opened and the competition is inviting entries for its 2018 round. The 2017 awards received an unprecedented total of 869 entries, from which 55 finalists were selected. On the back of this success, the PPC Imaginarium is encouraging emerging creatives to enter the country’s richest art and design competition, which offers R500 000 in prizes.

The winner of each of the six categories will receive a cash prize of R50 000, with runners-up walking away with R15 000 each. The overall winner will receive the grand prize of R100 000 – that’s in addition to having won their respective category prize.

The PPC Imaginarium Awards were established by PPC Ltd as a means to give emerging designers and artists the opportunity to showcase their talent and creative thinking by using Portland cement-based concrete as a primary base or material across the competition’s six disciplines, namely, Architecture, Fashion, Film, Industrial design, Jewellery and Sculpture. The competition is the most supportive of its kind in the country and has seen many of its past entrants and finalists go on to become recognised in the art and business community.

The awards are open to South African citizens, resident holders as well as foreign students with study permits, who are not professionally established in their respective fields. Artists and designers may enter multiple categories, with an original artwork for each category, and may enter over again if they entered in previous years. Entry registrations must be submitted online via the official website, www.ppcimaginarium.co.za.

Film entries close on Tuesday, 31 October 2017. Entries for the Sculpture, Industrial Design, Fashion, Jewellery and Architecture categories close on Friday, 1 December 2017. National judging and the 2018 winners announcement will take place in April 2018. The winner and runner-up in the Architecture category will be announced in May 2018.
