Sanlam Awards for Excellence in Financial Journalism 2017

Subject : Sanlam Awards for Excellence in Financial Journalism 2017

We are pleased to inform you that entries are now open for the 2017 edition of the Sanlam Awards for Excellence in Financial Journalism, an annual awards programme which is open to financial/business journalists from across the continent for the African Growth Story category.

Entries will close on Friday, 2 March 2017. Entries are open for work published/broadcast between 1 January and 31 December 2017.

Launched in 1974, the Awards reward excellence in financial journalism. They aim to honour the indispensable role of the financial journalist in modern business life and the high standards required by this profession - in particular integrity, diverse knowledge and insight, responsibility and judgement.

In 2013 Sanlam introduced a new category, the African Growth Story, the only one of the five categories in the competition that is open for entry to all African journalists whose work is published and/or broadcast in Africa. This category aims to honour the journalist who best captures the growth story of the continent.

The Awards will be presented in 2018 in Johannesburg (exact date to be confirmed).

Previous winners of the Awards include Kenyan journalist, Mr Neville Otuki of the Nairobi-based Business Daily, Allan Odhiambo of Business Daily (Kenya) and Ancillar Mangena of Forbes Africa magazine.
