The SADC has called for entries to the 2018 Southern African Development Community Media Awards. The Competition was launched at the Institute for the Advancement of Journalism last Friday.
Entries must be submitted by 27 February 2018. The award ceremony will take place at the SADC Heads of State summit in August 2018.
The submitted work must have been published or broadcast between January and December 2017 by a registered or authorised media house or agency, or carried on a website of a registered or authorised media house or agency in any of the SADC member states.
“The media should continue to tell stories that promote regional integration in the SADC region,” said Acting Deputy Director General at GCIS, Michael Currin.
South Africa, as current chair of SADC, will be chairing the SADC Media Awards Regional Adjudication Committee meeting next year.
