13 March 2013

The Deputy Minister of Performance Monitoring and Evaluation, Mr Obed Bapela, will deliver a keynote address during the launch of the 2013 SADC Media Awards competition.

The SADC Media Awards are annual awards that aim to recognise excellence in journalism in the area of print, photo, television, radio as well as to encourage media practitioners in member states to cover cross border issues pertaining to the region.

The competition also consists of the Water Media Awards which are aimed at recognising stories that promote Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) in the SADC region.

SADC member states are mandated to coordinate and facilitate the Awards in their own countries for their national media, hence the launch of the South African Chapter.

Members of the media with a South African citizenship/permanent resident are invited as follows:
