Nearly 100 years ago Standard Bank Group acquired its first painting. This was the start of a love affair with the arts that continues to this day.

One of the many things we did to strengthen this relationship was to introduce the Standard Bank Young Artist Awards in South Africa over 25 years ago.

This year’s winners -- as with all their predecessors – are leaving their mark in their disciplines in the South African and the international arenas.

The 2012 winners have just been announced. They are individuals with distinctive artistic voices, who are bringing a fresh edge to their respective disciplines:

· Kelebogile (Pearl) Boikanyo for Music
· Mikhael Subotzky for Visual Art
· Princess Zinzi Mhlongo for Theatre
· Bailey Snyman for Dance
· Afrika Mkhize for Jazz.
