Inscape is a Private Higher Education Institution offering accredited degrees, diploma’s and Higher Certificates in the Creative and Built Environment sectors. The institution promotes design (a.k.a problem solving) as a solution to future careers. The term design thinking has been adopted in many sectors not traditionally referred to as creative and the world at large now recognises creative thinking as a key skill for the future.
The Inscape team developed the Inscape Young Designers Award to educate schools and their learners on the extent of design and design education as a solution to careers of the future. The competition is open to all learners including those not typically aware of design as a solution to make change and improve life. The initiative aims to find an insanely imaginative, infectiously awesome and intentionally expressive unique thinker annually? The Award is open to Grade 8-12 learners and includes a grand prize of R50 000 cash (R25 000 for the winner and R25 000 for their respective school). In addition, an Inscape online OFFSITE course for the winner, five friends and their teacher are on offer.
