And we’re back! A total of R100 000 is up for grabs in three categories in this year’s Fix it with Flair competition. We can’t wait to see what all you home renovators have been up to...

You’ve seen the first of the finalists from last year’s Fix it with Flair competition, and you’ll have to agree: 2021 was jam-packed with clever renovation ideas from Tuis|Home readers. Think you can do better and bag a cash prize with your own makeover in 2022? Show us what you’ve got! 

JoJo, SA’s top domestic water solutions company, has partnered with us once again as headline sponsor for the year, ensuring that you’re all set when it comes to your home renovation water needs.

The name JoJo is synonymous with water tanks for your garden, but they also supply a range of pumps, rainwater-harvesting accessories and filters that will enable you to fit your home with a rainwater-harvesting, municipal backup or integrated system – all essential elements that ensure your water security. Look out for more innovations from JoJo this year! 



Check below and once you’ve decided which one best suits your project, submit your pics!

1. DIY 

This one is for avid DIYers who take on 50% of the work themselves. So if knocking down walls or retiling doesn’t scare you, go for it! You’ll have to submit a budget breakdown and show what you did with your own two hands. 

2. Innovation 

If you fancy yourself an out-of-the-box thinker, this category is for you. It could be an eco house, a mobile home, an outdoor kitchen – you name it! Whether you did it yourself or managed the project, feel free to enter your makeover here.

3. Most Beautiful 

If you’re all thumbs and have a fear of power tools but you oversaw a gorgeous renovation and paid for it, consider this option. Even if a contractor completed 100% of the physical work, you are eligible for this prize.

The prizes

R100 000 in cash is up for grabs: the winner in each category will receive R25 000; the runner-up in each category will receive R5 000.The Top 9 contestants each get R1 000. One favourite, based on reader votes, will get R1 000 cash.
