PPC Imaginarium Workshop

We recently held a PPC Imaginarium Workshop on 4 and 5 May where our students were taught how to work with cement as a creative medium, thanks to the incredibly talented Damien Grivas and Daniel van der Merwe.

This was all in service of the PPC Imaginarium competition, which is all about using cement as a medium for artistic expression. The Awards are currently held across six categories: Industrial Design, Jewellery Design, Film, Sculpture, Architecture and Fashion.

To learn more about the PPC Imaginarium competition, have a look at their Facebook page here.

Stellenbosch Academy Graduate named Finalist in Sony World Photography Awards

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!

Good luck!
