PLATAFRICA COMPETITIONS

PlatAfrica 2024 – Legacy and beyond – entries are now open

Entries for PlatAfrica, South Africa’s premiere platinum jewellery design and manufacturing competition are open.

This year, thanks to the talent of all our professional and student/apprentice designers, the competition celebrates 25 years of platinum design excellence.

2024 marks a momentous milestone for the global platinum industry: it’s the 100th anniversary of the discovery of the Merensky Reef, the world’s most prolific source of platinum group metals, right here in South Africa.
The discovery was made by geologist Dr Hans Merensky and the reef has since played a pivotal role in South Africa’s economy and the global market.

PlatAfrica 2024 celebrates this significant centennial event under the theme Legacy and beyond, casting forward to the industry’s boundless possibilities.
How will you make your mark on the world of design?

How will your PlatAfrica 2024 design and leave a legacy worth aspiring to?

Please email to juno@junocorp.co.za

Final requests must be received on or before 3 June 2024.

Participants must submit their design pieces by 26 July 2024.
