The Annual Local Media Excellence Awards is aimed at encouraging excellence and rewarding meritorious work and was previously sponsored and organised by Sanlam, who has unfortunately decided to terminate its participation in the annual local media awards.
The competition has always been presented under the auspices of the FCJ, so the management committee has decided that the competition will continue. The FCJ has also decided to rename the competition to The Annual Local Media Excellence Awards and will be organising the competition. We have re-introduced two categories: editorial comment and headlines.
The Local Media Excellence Awards is open to any editorial staff member (permanent or freelance) working for a local print newspaper or magazine in South Africa.
The competition covers the period 1 January 2015 to 31 December 2015 and the closing date for entries is 29 February 2016. The closing date has now been extended to 31 March 2016. The awards ceremony will be held in May 2016. Details to follow.
For enquiries about entries, contact Hugo Redelinghuys on 044 874 2424 (ext.249) or firstname.lastname@example.org
The call for entries is also available for download from the FCJ website at www.fcjonline.co.za.
The closing date for entries is 31 March 2016.
Each entry/portfolio must have a separate entry form.
Entrants may submit entries in any of the sections – even in all of them. However, only one entry/portfolio per participant per section is allowed.
PLEASE NOTE: Entrants exceeding the prescribed maximum per section will be disqualified.
In each case, the editor/manager/publisher (whoever is appropriate) must verify that the entry is the entrant’s own work.
Entries can be submitted in any of the 11 official languages.
The FCJ reserves the right to change the conditions, rules, sections and prize details of the competition at its discretion.
The decision of the judges will be final and no correspondence will be entered into. The judges reserve the right to make no award if insufficient entries are received or they feel that none of the entries in a particular category are sufficiently meritorious.
