Previously, only hard copy entries were accepted by the awards. This year, entries can now be sent via email or as a hard copy.

Entries have to abide to the rules set out in the official entry kit. Entrants are therefore urged to ensure their entries are supplied as PDFs or TIFFs as per the rules. Entry forms must also have their editor’s signature and motivation as well as proof of payment for each category entered. Entries that are not in the specified format will be disqualified.

As the Wednesday, 13 March deadline approaches, journalists and their editors should be finalising their entries to submit as soon as possible. This year, there is no extension to the deadline.

The Standard Bank Sikuvile Journalism Awards recognises excellence in journalism and aims to reward journalists for publishing the truth under difficult, and at times threatening, conditions.

This year, the awards will take place on Thursday, 12 September at The Venue, Melrose Arch.

Submissions can be submitted to [email protected].
