Media integrity contest accepting nominations [South Africa]

Posted on Apr 6, 2020 in Media Entrepreneurship

Print and online journalism professionals, publishers and owners can be nominated for an award.

The South African National Editors Forum (SANEF) is calling for nominations for the 2020 Nat Nakasa Award for Media Integrity.

Nominees must have demonstrated integrity and reported fearlessly; displayed a commitment to serve the people of South Africa; tenaciously striven to maintain a publication or other medium despite insurmountable obstacles; resisted any censorship; and/or shown courage in making information available to the South African public.

This year, SANEF has launched a new community media award to celebrate courageous journalism in the community media sector.

The winners are usually recognized at a gala dinner in June.

The deadline is May 29.
