A selection of creative concepts from this year’s PPC Imaginarium Awards’ finalists will be showcased at the ART AFRICA FAIR 2017 from 24 February to 5 March 2017 at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. Artworks and designs from across the competition’s six entry categories, namely architecture, jewellery, sculpture, fashion, industrial design and film, will be on display for the duration of the fair.
The PPC Imaginarium Awards gives emerging designers and artists the opportunity to showcase their talent and creative thinking by using cement as their primary medium. Now in its third edition, it is the most supportive competition 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 exhibition at the ART AFRICA FAIR will provide a taste of the exceptional talent that has come to be expected of the competition, and is sure to captivate and excite art enthusiasts.
After the fair, the finalists will go on to the national judging phase in which they will be competing for the overall winner prize of R100 000. In addition, a category winner and runner-up will be chosen from each category and awarded R50 000 and R15 000 respectively. Finalists will also have their work displayed at a number of galleries and exhibitions across the country in a travelling showcase that will see their work gain widespread exposure.
The overall winner, category winners and runners-up will be announced at the UJ Gallery in Johannesburg on 18 May 2017.
