With the deadline for entries closing in just 10 days, journalists and editors are encouraged to submit their work into the Standard Bank Sikuvile Journalism Awards (Sikuvile Awards) as soon as they can.
There are 12 categories that can be entered, including two new categories, Indigenous language reporting in community media and Community Service Reporting.
All category winners receive the coveted Sikuvile Journalism Award Trophy as well as R15,000 prize money (to be shared if there is more than one winner in a category).
The Awards for Rising Star of the Year and Journalist of the Year are selected from the entries in the categories by the jury.
The Allan Kirkland Soga: Achievement Award is also awarded by the jury. This award recognises a sustained and extraordinary contribution to newspaper journalism on the part of an individual and the winner will have demonstrated impeccable ethics and craft excellence.
These Awards are hosted by the South African National Editors’ Forum (SANEF) and sponsored by Standard Bank.
Winners will be announced at a live event at The Venue, Melrose Arch, on 25 June 2022.
