The South African media has been invited to submit their entries for the 2020 Southern African Development Community (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.
Journalists who wish to enter the competition can access more information about the competition on the www.sadc.int and www.gcis.gov.za websites.
