IEB Matric Art Exhibition/Competition 2015 3 – 8 August, 2015

Opening on Monday, 3 August at 6:30p.m.
Prize giving on Saturday, 8 August at 11a.m.

Over the last couple of years we have been approached at times and discussed artworks produced by scholars at private schools in KZN and how they do not receive the recognition they deserve.
In response to this we had our first IEB Matric Art Exhibition and Competition in September 2014. Again this year, we have set aside one week in August (3 - 8 August) to show the best works produced by scholars at the schools we have found that do the IEB Matric Art.
The way this exhibition works is that each school is asked to select a maximum of three to five works (depending on space available) of this year's Matric Art student body to compete for three prizes, as determined by a panel of independent judges selected from Durban galleries and Durban University of Technology Fine Art department.
The prizes available are as follows: 1st  prize R1,000, 2nd prize R750, 3rd prize R500 and three merit prizes of R250 each.
Obviously, we believe that this IEB Matric Art exhibition and competition will be an extra incentive to the students to produce excellent works.
The 12 participating schools are:       
Clifton College, Durban Girls' College, Epworth, Hilton College, Marist Stella, Michaelhouse, Our Lady of Fatima, St. Anne's Diocesan College, St. Henry’s Marist College, St. Marys' DSG, Thomas More College, Treverton College
