Amex ZA Graphic Arts Challenge

more than a year ago

American Express launches an exciting new graphic arts competition in partnership with Nedbank. The Amex Za Graphic Arts Challenge will choose the work of five artists to be featured in an exhibition, and marketing campaigns for American Express' partner merchants.

To enter the competition you need to creatively respond to, and interpret, the theme 'The vibrant African marketplace – everyone is welcome'. The works will be used on signage and marketing materials for South African merchants with the intention being to show that all customers are accepted and welcomed.

The panel that will choose the five winners includes people drawn from disciplines that include curation, cultural production, photography, editorial and fashion design. In addition to receiving a cash prize of R100 000 from Nedbank, the five artists will be featured in an exhibition at Keyes Art Mile in 2023.

With the only entry requirements being that you currently reside in South Africa, it's a great opportunity for artists to get invaluable exposure, and the prize money will help push their careers even further.

James Wainaina, Business Development Vice President (Sub-Saharan Africa), American Express, says, "American Express is delighted to launch this initiative, helping to support messages of inclusivity and equity with customers and communities in South Africa alongside American Express merchants."

If your interest is piqued, register here. Once registered you will be guided through the entry process. The competition runs until Tue, Jan 31, 2023 and is open all graphic artists, illustrators and designers currently residing in South Africa.
