THE 2018/2019 SHINING LIGHT AWARDS (SLA) WINNERS

SLA is a beneficiation programme aimed at creating opportunities for designers in the diamond producer partner countries by providing high-level exposure to the retail segment within the diamond value chain.

The jewellery design competition is open to students from De Beers Group’s diamond producing partner countries (Botswana, Canada, Namibia, and South Africa) currently enrolled in a jewellery design and manufacturing programme, or graduates from one of the related programmes in the last two years. The 2018/2019 competition marks first-time participation of entrants from Canada, extending the competition’s reach and impact, and bringing the number of finalists to 12, the most ever awarded in a single competition.

Since the inception of the Awards in 1996, we have seen a huge increase in the number of participants, and we have witnessed some of our previous winners embarking on successful careers in the industry.

This goes to show that there is a huge amount of latent talent in Botswana, Canada, Namibia and South Africa and the Shining Light Awards provide the ideal vehicle for these skilled designers to show their worth.
