Design Indaba Emerging Creatives 2018 entries now open

 Design Indaba Emerging Creatives 2018 entries now open

This is a call to all young South Africans using their love for all things creative to build businesses and create sustainable design.

Since 2005, the Department of Arts & Culture and Design Indaba have been empowering emerging creatives, offering them a platform and also helping to open doors for them into the industry. Our finalists have proven, over the years, that they have what is required to take South Africa’s economy forward.

Entries for the 2018 programme are now open for the next intake. We’re looking for 40 finalists.

They will get the opportunity to not only exhibit their work with us but to also be part of major networking opportunities that will place their brand and image in front of industry greats at the Design Indaba Festival in 2018.

In addition to the 40 finalists, a selection of finalists will be chosen to exhibit in their hometown – as part of the Extended class – at Design Indaba Simulcast venues in Johannesburg and Durban.


Applications need to be submitted no later than midnight 15 October 2017.
Extended class applications will be considered until 15 November 2017.
