Competition catch-up

You’re ready to hand in your physical submission, but are unsure of what to do next. Here’s a handy guideline that will help keep you updated on what the next phases in the competition hold and what to expect.

Share

With submission deadlines scheduled for the latter half of January 2017, at this point you should have completed work on your physical submissions or only be adding the final touches before you submit for judging. If you missed our previous post on when and where to drop-off your physical submission in your region, have a look here. If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed by all the due dates and deadlines and are not quite sure what to do with your final piece, we’ve put together a useful guide to help calm your nerves and keep you on track.

PRODUCTION PHASE

We are currently in this phase of the awards. Contestants produce their physical piece for final submission. See the submission deadline for your region here.

REGIONAL PHYSICAL SUBMISSION

You’ve completed your artwork and it’s ready for submission. You will have to package it yourself. It’s important that you take great care when packaging your physical submission to ensure that it does not get damaged or break. Check our guidelines here [NEW LINK]. Submit your physical submission at your regional drop-off point – make careful note of the cut-off time.

REGIONAL JUDGING

If your submission makes it to the next round or if your submission is unsuccessful, we will inform you via e-mail. Please keep a look out for e-mails from us after submitting your final piece. Remember to check your spam or junk mail folders, too.

NATIONAL JUDGING

Who will be the overall winner? Our panel of experts will judge the final list of entries and the winner will be announced on 11 March 2017 at the Association of Arts Pretoria.
