Due to numerous requests, the deadline for entries for the 2024 edition of the Standard Bank Sikuvile Journalism Awards, brought to you by the South African National Editors’ Forum (SANEF), has been extended.

The deadline was initially on Friday, 29 March 2024, However, we have noted that it coincided with the Eastern Friday religious festivities and has now been extended by five days. The deadline to submit your entries will now be Wednesday 3rd April 2024.

The Awards will cover stories published or broadcast between 1 January 2023 and 31 December 2023. There will be no extension and winners will be announced at an event on Saturday, 22 June, at a venue yet to be confirmed in Gauteng.

The awards are open to all media platforms – print, online/digital, and broadcast (radio and TV) journalists. They are regarded as a highlight on the journalistic calendar rewarding the exceptional work done by the country’s journalists, in categories ranging from investigative journalism to feature writing, and lifestyle as well as photojournalism.

The Awards reflect the importance of groundbreaking, accurate, fact-based, truthful, fair, and verified reporting in a world where misinformation and disinformation continue to be a major concern in the media sector. They are also proof of the key role that the Fourth Estate plays in the country’s democracy.
