The South African media have been invited to submit their entries for the 2022 Southern African Development Community (SADC) Media Awards competition which is open to journalists from the SADC Member States.
In a statement, Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) said the first prize winners will receive their prizes and certificates on the margins of the 42nd SADC Summit of Heads of State and Government.
The awards were established in 1996 to recognise best media work in disseminating information on SADC to support the process of regional co-operation and integration in the region. The first prize winner in each category will receive US$2500 and the runner-up receives US$1000.
“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,” GCIS said.
