WHAT ARE THE IMAGINARIUM AWARDS?
In 2014, PPC extended its existing sculpture, fine art, and industrial design competition (The Young Concrete Sculptor Awards) to include the creative disciplines of jewellery design, fashion design, and film. Thus, the Imaginarium Awards was created - an ambitious modern art and design competition aimed at providing emerging artists and designers with the opportunity to showcase their talents through the medium of concrete.
THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE IMAGINARIUM AWARDS
PPC believes that investing in innovation and creativity not only creates jobs, it makes for more sustainable communities, better businesses, and pushes our economy to grow in an increasingly competitive global world.
By providing support and promoting innovative thinking, the Imaginarium Awards aims to establish young emerging artists and designers as leaders in their respective industries. Through the convergence of innovation, design, and fine art, the Imaginarium hopes to create a space for young creatives to engage with key social issues faced by people and communities globally.
