The Design, Art and Textile Design ComPETition, in association with Hill’s Pet Nutrition and Domestic Animal Rescue Group (DARG), will benefit pets less fortunate than our own and reward local designers with over R50 000 in prize money. The Design ComPETition is all about bespoke pet furniture such as designer beds, cat perches, multi-functional furniture and flat-packs for pet travel, to name a few. In the Art ComPETition, artists and designers will be given a basic wooden bed to create a one-of-a-kind design using paint, mosaic, collage, metal, pewter, or any other art medium. The Textile Design ComPETition will have fabric designers create gorgeous prints. Expo visitors will be invited to bid on their favourite design or artwork for their furry friend, with funds raised going to DARG.
