Young Artist Awards

The Young Artist Awards form part of the National Arts Festival programme. The awards are regarded as the most prestigious awards that recognise established South African artists of a relatively young age who have demonstrated exceptional ability in their chosen fields but who have not yet achieved national exposure or acclaim.

A key aspect of the awards is that they guarantee the artists a place on the main programme of the forthcoming festival. Apart from a cash prize, each winner receives substantial financial backing for a festival production/exhibition. The list of past winners reads like a Who’s Who of South Africa’s creative talent most of who have gained international recognition.
