News Desk

Craftsmen are invited to submit entries in the following disciplines: grass-weaving, ceramics, beadwork, wirework, wood, jewellery, paper, fabric painting and printing, quilting, leatherwork, pewter, glasswork, embroidery and mixed media. They may also mark their entries for consideration in the Corporate Gifts, Beaded Craft Products, Craft Produced Using Recycled Materials and Souvenirs categories.

Sixty entries will be shortlisted and put forward for final judging and the winners will be announced at the National Innibos Craft Awards Exhibition and Prize-giving on Sunday, June 21, 2020, at which the shortlisted entries will be displayed.  The exhibition will remain open to members of the public for the duration of the annual Innibos National Arts Festival, which attracts over 100 000 visitors each year.

Crafters have until midnight on May 1, 2020, to enter. They need simply take a photo of their entry – next to a matchbox for the size of scale, and either email it to crafts@innibos.co.za or send it to 071 621 3597 via MMS or WhatsApp. There is no entry fee.

T’s & C’s apply and can be found on the competition’s Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/Innibosnationalcraftawards. Remember to include your name, the town in which you live and your contact details.

The overall winner walks away with R50 000, the first runner-up with R20 000 and the second runner-up with R15 000, while the winners of the new categories each win R20 000.
