Who may participate in this competition? 

Participants in the National Eisteddfod 2018

  • All participants in the National Eisteddfod of South Africa that received Diploma Awards for Visual Arts in 2018 may enter for this competition.
  • Only participants in the National Eisteddfod of South Africa 2018 can register their intention to enter online

Participants in other festivals or events.

  • Any young artist that received a diploma or similar award in any other Visual & Creative Arts Competition/Festival/Eisteddfod during 2018 may enter.
  • Organizers of other eisteddfods and festivals may also enter their top achievers in Art under the name of their organization.
  • Alternatively, parents of participants in other Visual Arts eisteddfods and festivals are welcome to enter on their own.
  • Schools, institutions, studios, do not necessarily participate in eisteddfods or other festivals or only do so bi-annually. Some of these institutions / studios manage their own internal visual arts events / competitions. In order to create an additional platform for young visual and creative artists, these institutions / studios are invited to enter their top achievers for annual National Eisteddfod Young Artist Award Competition.  The expected level of achievement is high; therefore these entries can only be selected and submitted by the relevant institution. This will usually follow a process of internal selection and cannot be done by individual parents.
  • A copy of the diploma of similar certificate / report as awarded at another festival in 2018 should be attached to the entry.
