Are you South Africa's Best Digital Student?

The IAB SA Bookmark Awards 2017 are recognising South Africa's brightest young digital talent.
Are you South Africa's Best Digital Student?

“Digital is, by nature, a playground for young creativity. We are excited to review and recognise the many ways in which emerging talent is contributing to the industry and shaping its future,” says Josephine Buys, CEO for IAB SA. “We look forward to awarding tomorrow’s talent and watching these digital stars rise.”

What better way to start your career in digital than being recognised as a young digital pioneer? If you are studying a digital course at an institution including marketing and related disciplines such as UX and your work is making waves, this is the category for you to be recognised in.

John Dixon, ‎Jury Chair for The Bookmarks, said, “We’re looking for budding talent in online design, copywriting, social media campaigns, development and more. If the concept is gold, we want to see it!”

Schools, colleges and varsities are encouraged to enter their students’ outstanding projects. This is a fantastic way to recognise students’ good work, and showcase the excellence of the institution itself. The student category entry fee has been significantly reduced to just R500 per entry to encourage more entries this year, and if the institution submit five entries, they will get one more entry free!

The Best Digital Student category is an opportunity to showcase the world-class digital talent that is being fostered in our country.
