Intern at SA Taxi Foundation Art Award

The SA Taxi Foundation Art Award is a unique award in that it asks entrants to work to a set of guidelines which combine fine art AND design skills. For the third year of the award, SA Taxi Foundation would like to assist a young designer who is interested in the creative industry in developing their skill set and building a portfolio of work.

The selected intern will need to be hands-on with many elements of the art award. The main focus is to expose young designers to the practical translation of design into business. Design does not work in a vacuum but rather it extends into how we run our marketing, social media, inform artists/entrants and the public of the art award.

Minimum qualifications and skills:

Minimum second year student with a portfolio of evidence and recommendation from the institution of study.
