The PPC Imaginarium Awards is a competition where we reward innovative concepts and prototypes that use PPC concrete in the creative disciplines of architectural design, fashion design, short film, industrial design, jewellery design and sculpture. This exciting modern art and design competition aims to give emerging artists and designers the opportunity to showcase their talents and is open to emerging artists in Zimbabwe and South Africa. 


By investing in innovative thinking – and the thinkers behind these creative solutions – we build the industry we work in. Ultimately, we can then contribute to a better society, where creative thinking goes towards making stronger, more sustainable communities. Within this context, we work towards making our industry and the South African economy more robust in a global world.

By providing support and promoting innovative thinking, The PPC Imaginarium Awards helps to establish young emerging artists and designers as leaders in their respective industries.
