It is that time of year again; Interpret Durban is back and they’re celebrating their 5th birthday! For those of you not in the know Interpret Durban or #ID5 as this year’s installation will be more commonly called is a creative competition that covers photography, video, illustration/design and visual art that culminates in a night of awesome exhibitions and live music where the prize giving’s take place. This year’s theme considers the building blocks of a city under the title Durban DNA and asks, what makes a city?
The #ID5 crew have put together over R90 000 worth of prizes across 5 categories with sponsors such as Red Bull Studio’s Cape Town, The Delphic Games, Broadcast Lighting and Savior Brand to name a few.
It’s the kind of incentive you creative types always want but seldom get. So listen up. Here are the categories and sub themes:
Professional Photography – I am Durban
Amateur Photography – Pure Durban
Illustration/design – Durban Bulletin
Video – Durban Atmosphere
Visual Arts – Durban urban
To be part of this great creative challenge and stand a chance to win your share of over R90 000 in prizes (including fat cash prizes) AND exhibit with the best Durban has to offer at #ID5 all you need to do is go to www.interpretdurban.com and download the brief and separate entry form for one of the 5 categories mentioned above. Simple.
Time’s ticking and the deadline will get here quicker than you think, so get going!

(Just a note for those of you outside of Durban. Apart from the cash prizes for 1st places, a lot of the other stuff is Durban focused i.e. Gallery exhibition space and Vouchers so just bare that in mind)
