Each artist will receive a cash incentive and a commission to premiere a new work at the 2022 National Arts Festival

The Standard Bank Young Artist (SBYA) award recognises SA artists who have made their mark on the art scene. It’s a badge of honour and a golden opportunity; a recognition of creativity, originality, talent, hard work, ambition and imagination — and a platform on which to build in pursuit of new artistic achievements.

For almost four decades, the partnership between Standard Bank and the National Arts Festival that makes the SBYA awards possible has exemplified the kind of public-private arts partnership that supports and sustains boldness, innovation and excellence from SA’s artists.
