Members of the media are invited to submit their entries for the 2016 SADC Media Awards Competition and the closing date is 29 February 2016.

The SADC Media Awards were established in 1996 following a decision by the Council of Ministers to establish a sector that deals with matters relating to among others, information, culture and sport. These awards serve as part of ensuring a link, coordination and synchronisation between formal structures of the South African Development Community (SADC) governments, civil society, academia, labour and the media.

The objectives are to promote regional integration and cooperation (cross-border issues) with the broader aim of recognising 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.

The competition also consists of the Water Media Awards which are aimed at recognising stories that promote Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) in the SADC region. The competition has four categories namely; print photojournalism, television and radio.

Journalists who wish to enter the competition can access more information about the competition, including competition rules, from the GCIS.

Entries need to be posted or delivered to MDDA or GCIS offices marked:
