01 May SUBMISSION DETAILS
The Intern By David Tlale
The Intern By David Tlale is a brand-new reality TV show airing on SABC3 starting on the 4th of July 2017. The show will give 12 lucky contestants the opportunity to take part in a 13-week internship programme consisting of various challenges and eliminations. David Tlale is one of Africa’s top fashion designers making waves in the fashion industry internationally – so this would be an excellent opportunity for African designers wanting a much sought after breakthrough in the fashion industry, affording them national exposure and giving them the chance to learn from the best, David Tlale.
The first phase will be a national roadshow, where David and his team will be visiting Cape Town, Durban, Polokwane, and Johannesburg. On the day, David will be giving workshops to the hopeful contestants at each of the locations and will choose the lucky 12 contestants that will join him in Johannesburg. The final 12 contestants that are chosen will then not only compete on the 13-week reality TV show to be The Intern, but will also, on elimination from the TV show, get an opportunity to join David Tlale’s in-house internship programme for 6 months.
HOW TO ENTER:
You must compile a complete fashion design portfolio of your own work including your fashion résumé. The portfolio will then be judged by David Tlale and 12 contestants will be selected. Three complete garments must be ready to show at the pre-judging.
Your portfolio must be a separate .pdf file (under 15MB) and must consist of the following:
5 storyboards of existing ranges or a collection consisting of 5 complete looks.
Add a brief description and inspiration of not more than 100 words for your collection.
The first entry channel is the website; www.theintern.co.za where you can digitally submit your portfolio. If you are unable to digitally submit your portfolio on the website, then you can drop it off at any SABC office. Please ensure that it is correctly addressed to:

If you enter by using these channels you will receive a reply e-mail requesting your full name and ID or Passport number (SABC office entries must have your contact details included for us to request this information from you). Please be advised that persons who have submitted their portfolios prior to the roadshow will jump the queue. Remember to bring a valid ID, passport, or driver’s licence. If you are experiencing any difficulties with digital entries, please feel free to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have not been able to submit your portfolio beforehand, you can bring your design portfolio on the day to be judged by David. If you are unable to attend a workshop in your city, you can travel to the next city. Please note that if David Tlale has rejected your work you are not allowed to ‘re-enter’ at a different location.
You do not necessarily have to have a degree or diploma in Fashion Design, so if you are self-taught you also qualify to enter. These requirements do include individuals who may not have completed their degrees or diplomas due to unforeseen circumstances. If you are self-taught you must have a minimum of 3 years’ experience.
If you are currently studying to obtain your degree or diploma in Fashion Design, please note that you must be in your final year if you wish to enter.
You must reside in South Africa.
Every selected contestant will receive exposure on national television during the show, and will participate in David Tlale’s internship programme after elimination for a period of 6 months. The ultimate winner of the TV show will become David’s assistant designer and win studio equipment to the value of R250 000.
The dates for the roadshows are also the official closing dates for each specific location. Please note that the Johannesburg leg of the roadshow is the final closing date and no more submissions will be accepted after Johannesburg.
