Sanlam awards African journalists

Sanlam Namibia Holdings CEO Tertius Stears has called upon Namibian journalists to take advantage of the recently launched 2014 Sanlam Awards for Excellence in Financial Journalism.
Originally open to South African journalists only, this year’s awards will for the first time in the awards’ 30 year history be open to journalists from across the African continent.
Through a newly-introduced award, the ‘African Growth Story Award, Sanlam will reward outstanding and in-depth reporting that highlights and contributes towards the economic rise of the continent. In a statement, Sanlam said news value, rigour in reporting, originality, impact and storytelling are among the criteria that will be used in the judging of the ‘African Growth Story’ award.
The category is open to journalists from across the continent who work for African media vehicles.
