Members of the South African media are invited to submit their entries for the 2021 Southern African Development Community (SADC) Media Awards competition.

“To promote regional integration and cooperation, the awards aim to recognise excellence in journalism in the areas of print, photo, television, radio, as well as to encourage media practitioners in member States to cover issues pertaining to the region,” the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) said on Wednesday.

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 the formal structures of SADC governments, civil society, academia, labour and the media.

Journalists who wish to enter the competition can access more information about the competition from the www.sadc.int and www.gcis.gov.za websites.
