Are you an arts writer, broadcaster or photographer in traditional media or publishing online? Then it’s time to get your portfolio together, because the National Arts Festival and Business and Arts South Africa (BASA) are calling for entries for the third annual 2015 South African Arts Journalist of the Year Awards (SAAJAs).
“We’re looking for journalists who help spark and shape conversations around the arts; whose passion for the arts is palpable in their work; and whose journalism is deeply rooted in the ethics of their profession,” says Festival CEO Tony Lankester.
Journalists – or their editors – may submit as entries portfolios of work or individual items published between 1 January 2014 and 31 July 2015. Competition content categories span news, feature and review work, published in either written, visual, multimedia or audio formats.
Journalists can nominate themselves, but it’s also open to editors, colleagues or readers to nominate an arts writer they admire, and for arts publications to enter their brand.
Closing date for entries is 31 August 2015.
