Note: You must complete and attach an entry form to each piece that you submit.

Determine the category for your piece

Each piece is entered in a specific category.

Don’t know which category to select? To help identify an appropriate category, consider:

  • The equipment used to produce the piece.
  • The type of process used.
  • How the piece is used.
  • The number of colours — count the number of ink colours, including varnish. Do not count the paper or substrate or any type of foil.

Remember, you can enter a piece in more than one category!

Note: When you enter a piece in more than one category, you must submit the piece, an entry form, and pay a fee for each category you enter. Early bird entries costs R690 excluding VAT.

The judges will have the right to move an entry if they consider that it has been incorrectly entered into a specific category.
