Members of the South African media are invited to submit their entries for the 2021 Southern African Development Community (SADC) Media Awards.
“To promote regional integration and cooperation, the awards aim to recognise excellence in journalism in the areas of print, photo, television and radio and encourage media practitioners in member states to cover issues pertaining to the region,” the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) said recently.
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 to ensure a link, coordination and synchronisation between the formal structures of SADC governments, civil society, academia, labour and the media.
Journalists who wish to enter the competition can access more information from the www.sadc.int www.gcis.gov.za websites.
