Design Indaba Emerging Creatives programme 2019 for south african designers

Deadline: 30th October, 2019

The Design Indaba Emerging Creatives Programme aims to unearth fresh new talent across a multitude of sectors.


The Emerging Creatives programme is a developmental platform for young creatives who have relatively little industry exposure.

Design Indaba established the Emerging Creatives programme in 2005 because of a strong belief in nurturing this new creative talent and knocking down the barriers to entry for those just getting started. With the fundamental changes in the media landscape and the local design industry, we have endeavoured to make the programme even more relevant in the South African context.

Architects, fashion designers, illustrators, furniture designers or jewellers – all sectors are welcome and participants are selected based on the quality and originality of their work and its ability to stand alongside world-class designs.

The programme provides the opportunity to be inspired by the best designers in the world and the selected participants will get to meet leaders in the local and international design industry. Their work will be showcased to retail buyers and media nationally and internationally, and the programme gives support, mentorship and guidance in how to manage and grow small businesses.
All applications must be submitted no later than midnight on the 30th of October 2019.
