Softcopy is a quarterly magazine that was launched in 2015 by the then Executive Dean, Dr René Smith. Its purpose was to highlight local talent, inspire a new generation of artists, advance creativity and engage interdisciplinary knowledge.
By showcasing the expertise, talent, achievements and engagement of our students, alumni and staff, our magazine continues to contribute to DUT’s ENVISION2030 statement of intent to improve the lives and livelihoods of our people.
In 2022 the publication received the Marketing, Advancement and Communication in Education (MACE) award of excellence (bronze) for best digital magazine in a Higher Education institution in South Africa.
Softcopy Magazine is published quarterly by the Faculty of Arts and Design
DUT City Campus, cnr Smith St, Warwick Ave & Berea Road Durban Kwa-Zulu Natal 4001. South Africa.
