JOHANNESBURG, 24 October 2018 – South Africa’s first ever initiative to give accolades to the Awards industry has been launched and it will culminate in a gala event on 25 February 2019 where organisers will receive commendations for staging premier award programs in the country.
Awards will be handed out in more than 40 different categories, and the winners will be chosen on having the best overall year-on-year percentage growth for their programs.
According to Gerrit Davids, MD of Gerom Media, “The idea is for it to become the pinnacle for the Awards industry and with more than 1000 premier award programs being held annually in the country, there is definitely more than enough reason to give organisers the recognition they deserve for staging their programs year after year.”
All winners will automatically be entered into the African edition of the Awards, which will take place in July 2019 to crown the continent’s leading award programs.
Entry to the Awards has already opened and the closing date is 18 January 2019.
Entry Forms are available online at www.gerommedia.com
Nominations are also open for the Leaders In Tourism Awards (LITAS).
