SAB Sports Media Awards

South Africa Awards » Prize for Sports Writers

The South African Breweries Ltd (SAB)is the leading producer and distributor of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and one of the nation’s largest manufacturing firms.

This competition was conceived as the “SAB Sports Journalist of the Year Awards.”

Savory, a former newspaperman, believed there should be a competition to recognise and reward the achievements of sports writers.

The aim of these awards is to reinforce the importance of the media’s role in South Africa’s sporting development and to recognise and reward talent across all sporting media disciplines.

Rules of Entry:

  • All individuals are invited to submit their work or nominate others’ work, including editors, managers and/or colleagues.

  • All entries will be judged in the original language they were published or broadcast.

  • The format of the awards is built around five categories (print, photography, new media, radio and television).
