How to enter

Step 1

The entry fee is R2 600 per publication (no VAT applies). Should your company wish to enter more than one publication, this entry fee will drop by R200 per publication, up to five different publications per company. For example: If your company enters three publications the fee structure will be:

  • Publication 1: R2 600
  • Publication 2: R2 400
  • Publication 3: R2 200, etc.

You can enter as many publications as you like. The entry fee for the fifth publication, R1 800, will apply for all publications after the fifth entry.

Step 2

Please complete the entry form and press the send button. You will receive an acknowledgement email that your entry has been received. Your entry information will be included in that email. Print the email received and attached it to the publication you are entering / sending to us.

Organise payment because no entries will be judged if payment has not been received. Payments should be made electronically. You will receive an invoice and a receipt of payment.

Step 3

We need:

Select the publications you wish to enter according to judging criteria. For example: You can choose your April edition for writing, your August edition for design and your September issue for communication. You could also decide that the same issue of the publication should be used for all three judging categories.

Attach the printed entry form to each of the three publications. Copies entered should range from June 2016 to July 2017.
