The Santam child art competition is currently in its 49th year, Santam’s Child Art programme continues to add colour to the lives of thousands of children by providing a platform for young artists.

They partner with schools and art centres throughout South Africa to invite entries for the Child Art competition. An independent panel, judges the entries and selects 13 artworks to appear in our Child Art calendar for the following year. The calendar is made available to the public at R25 each and the proceeds are used to fund educator development (arts & culture) and art classes for children from previously disadvantaged communities.

This year Santam received over 6500 entries, and we are pleased that the following artworks submitted by DSS have been selected to feature in the Santam Child Art Web Exhibition. Only 220 artworks were selected for this exhibition, that means DSS entered 5% of the selected artworks. These artists will receive a certificate and a medal for participating. The Santam Child Art on-line Exhibition will be uploaded on the Santam website ( during the first quarter of 2013.
