Call for proposals: WIN R50 000 towards your event

    • Anywhere

    Western Cape Government

    Annually the Western Cape plays host to numerous events ranging from sport, leisure, business, culinary and lifestyle, amongst others. The positive impacts these events bring to the Province have been recognized and the Integrated Events Strategy identifies key projects to grow the sector over the next 15 years.



    As part of this, the Western Cape Government is looking to support a prospective public event in the Province by inviting event organizers to submit proposals to stand in line to win R 50 000.00 towards hosting the event. The competition calls for creative and exciting ideas which could stimulate the growth of the event and in turn increase positive socio-economic and environmental impacts within the host town.

    To qualify, entrants must reside in the Western Cape and have:

    • A valid ID document if the entrant is a South African citizen.
    • (non-SA citizens should supply) proof of permanent residence and proof that you are permitted to run a business/work in South Africa.
