Launch of the 2020 SADC Media Awards Competition
The South African media are invited to submit their entries for the 2020 SADC Media Awards competition.
The Awards were established following a decision by the Council of Ministers in 1996 to establish a sector that deals with matters relating to, amongst others, information, culture and sport.
These awards serve as part of ensuring a link, coordination and synchronisation between formal structures of SADC governments, civil society, academia, labour and the media.
To promote regional integration and cooperation (cross-border issues), the awards aim to recognise excellence in journalism in the area of print, photo, television, radio as well as to encourage media practitioners in member states to cover issues pertaining to the region.
The forms and the 2020 competition rules can be found on the links below:
Entries need to be posted or delivered to MDDA or any GCIS office nationwide marked:
5st Dacids Place
1035 Francis Baard Street
All entries must be submitted not later than 28 February 2020.
