In all, more than 160 South African, regional and international judges have the formidable task of seeking out work that is bold, innovative, and that challenges convention.

Says Loeries CEO Andrew Human: “The DStv Seminar of Creativity is an unmissable event for anyone who wants to be inspired by such great minds. Once again our jury presidents include some of the best creative leaders across the globe. It’s a honour to have them join us for Creative Week and I would urge everyone to hear their thoughts at our seminar.”

The DStv Seminar of Creativity is part of Loeries Creative Week Durban, taking place from Monday, 14 August, to Monday, 21 August 2017. The jury presidents are four of the eight speakers.
