EDHE Student Entrepreneurship Week (SEW) 2022

Student Design Competition


  • Starts: 15 June 2022

  • Ends: 08 July 2022 at 23:59

Every year leadership of institutions task persons or entities with designing and presenting a programme to support the objectives of Student Entrepreneurship Week (SEW), i.e. equipping students for entrepreneurship as a potential career. This is especially relevant, given the growing prevalence of graduate unemployment and the number of students who do not complete their tertiary education studies.

The SEW aims to promote and strengthen the entrepreneurial spirit amongst university students and staff across South Africa. The central hosting University for this year’s national launch of the SEW is the University of Venda (Univen) in Thohoyandou, under the theme #movetomarket. The #SEW2022 will be launched on the 18th of August 2022.

Creative industries perform an important role in the development of communities and the economy in South Africa. From visual and performing arts, museums, music, and fashion, all these industries also impact the advancement of urban areas. As part of the SEW2022, we invite all student creatives and graphic designers to enter the Student Design Competition to build awareness of the Student Entrepreneurship Week 2022. The winning poster will be used as the main advertisement for the SEW2022.

The Student Design Competition 2022 will be launched on the 15th of June and will accept entries till the 08th of July 2022. All designs must be saved in JPEG or PDF format and be submitted via the EDHE website by the 08th of July 2022 at 23:59.

  • The poster design should encourage student entrepreneurship, build awareness of entrepreneurship in the broader sense, and ignite enthusiasm about the business leaders of tomorrow.
  • The EDHE theme for this year’s #movetomarket directly applies to our student audience as well. Think driving sales, think about entering new markets! #SEW2022 must feature quite prominently in the design. The #movetomarket theme is informed by the importance of developing entrepreneurship despite socio-economic challenges.
  • The size of the designs must be;
    • Design 1: A3 (297 x 420 mm)
