SAB Launches Online Sports Media Awards 2012 Portal

3 September 2012

Johannesburg, 3rd September 2012: The South African Breweries (SAB) today called for entries for the "SAB Sports Media Awards 2012" with the launch of its new online competition portal.

Robyn Chalmers, Corporate Communications Head for SAB, says: "Last year promised to evolve this competition. This began with revising the categories, introducing new judges and having the entire process audited by an external auditing firm. We continue this evolution with the introduction of our Sports Media Awards portal." 

In order to gain access to the portal, users need to first register on  and then can either enter the competition or submit nominations and motivations for the Hall of Fame, Best Newcomer and Sports Personality of the Year Awards.

Chalmers says: "We understand that this is a new way of doing things and believe it will have a positive impact on the competition. At the same time, we know that there will be entrants who will prefer to submit physical entries. These physical entries will be captured under the auspices of the competition's auditors, Grant Thornton, and will be uploaded on behalf of the entrants onto the competition portal; provided they are received before the competition closes." 

Entries for the SAB Sports Media Awards open today, Monday 3rd September 2012 and close at 5pm on Wednesday 19th September 2012.


Entrants should submit work produced between 1st August 2011 and 31st August 2012. 

Winners will be announced at an Awards Function on the evening of Thursday, 8th November 2012 at the Wanderers Cricket Club.
