The North West Media Awards are led by veteran journalist and digital media entrepreneur Ananias Ndlovu from Quick Acts, supported by the Bojanala Press Club and a selected team of evaluators. NWDC’s Marketing & Communications Manager and Communication Specialist were also in attendance, showing support for this prestigious initiative to grow and support local media.

Categories in which persons from the media, and even provincial communicators are invited to compete in 2021 include:

  • Journalist of the Year
  • Photographer of the Year
  • News Reader of the Year
  • Presenter of the Year
  • Sport Presenter of the Year
  • Radio Station of the Year
  • Newspaper of the Year
  • Current Affairs Programme of the Year

In the coming months leading up to the awards function in December 2021, the Media Awards team will, as they put it, unapologetically go knocking on the doors of corporates and businesses in the province to obtain as many prize sponsors as possible.
