Jana Pellissier, one of our 3rd year students, recently helped create this beautiful wallpaper for The Foodbarn restaurant while interning at Room 13. It is quite aptly called ‘Ambrosia’ after the food of the gods. If you’ve ever eaten at The Foodbarn, you’ll know exactly why this makes sense!
To see more of Room 13’s beautiful design and illustration, check out their website here.

Cole Ndelu, a recent graduate of the Stellenbosch Academy has been named as a finalist at the Sony World Photography Awards! She is one of just three South Africans who have been named finalists in the competition, with the other two photographers appearing in the Open category. This makes Cole the only student from SA with a finalist placing!
Cole’s submission, Pride of the Panther, was created to meet the competition’s brief: Memories. This makes her one of just ten finalists in the student category from across the entire planet. To give you a further idea of the scope of this competition and put Cole’s achievement into perspective, the Sony World Photography Awards 2017 across all categories saw 227 596 images submitted from 183 countries. No mean feat!
As part of her placement as a finalist, Cole will be flown to London for the final judging where she stands a chance to win 30 000 Euros worth of photography equipment. Cole – we’ll be holding thumbs!

We’ve got amazing news to share; Lucia Petschnig, a student at the academy, was name as the only finalist for ADAA 2016 from the entire African continent!

Her work, 21st Century Pinup Girls imagines the pinup look from the 50s reimagined for modern life. Have a look at her amazing work below.
Good luck Lucia!
