Entries For Interpret Durban Are Open!


Has it been a year already? It feels like it was just the other day that we were “the fabled mice playing in the cats’ absence” in City Hall at last year’s Interpret Durban. This is the third time you get to Interpret Durban through your voice of choice and this year those choices are video, photography, mixed medium and design, although the design comp is invite only. They’ll be announcing the prizes and live acts for the event soon and considering last year had BLK JKS headlining, they’ve probably got something sweet in the works.


Each category has it’s own themes and they are as follows:

Photography: What is a postcard?

Video: A moment, a time, a place.

Mixed Medium: Windows into Durban.


If you haven’t added one of the previous year’s T-shirts to your wardrobe, you get another chance, this year’s T-shirt Design comp is invite only and will feature some of Durban’s top designers coming up with the best way to “Enter Durban.” So once the night is just a memory, you’ll still get a chance to wear it for years to come and you’ll be doing a really good deed as all the profits from shirt sales goes to Uthombo, a non-profit home for street children that gives the kids purpose through surfing, skating, soccer, art and the like.



Submissions close on the 25th of September with the actual event on the 29th, so you’ve got a couple weeks to execute something awesome and then get your party on. You can check out the full details and get entry forms from the Interpret Durban website and find out updates as they happen via Facebook and twitter. If you’re looking for some inspiration, you can read our interview with last year’s Photography winner, Samora Chapman and check out a compilation of the video entries below.
