How to enter

We take it you have worked through the “About” pages and you are almost ready to enter.

Step 1

The entry fee is R2 800 per publication (no VAT applies).

Should your company wish to enter more than one publication, this entry fee will drop by R200 per entry.
For example: If your company enters three publications the fee structure will be:

  • Publication 1: R2 800
  • Publication 2: R2 600
  • Publication 3: R2 400, etc.

You can enter as many publications as you like.
The entry fee for the fifth publication, R2 000, will apply for all publications after the fifth entry.
Please note that Editor of the Year is a separate paid entry – read more.
