The PPC Imaginarium Awards is proud to announce that the Call for Entry for the fourth edition of the competition officially opened 18 May 2017. Following the resounding success of the PPC Imaginarium Awards 2017, which saw a total of 869 entries into the competition and 55 finalists being selected, the awards competition continues to grow and produce a high caliber of interesting and diverse submissions.
The 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 judging process consists of three phases. The first phase is based on entrants’ written conceptual proposals to determine who makes it to the production phase. The second phase, in which regional judging takes place and finalists are chosen, will be based on physical submissions. The finalists will then be judged in the third and final phase at national level.
