Sport Industry Awards


The entries for the 2018 Sport Industry Awards – the most prestigious commercial sports awards in South Africa – are now open.

The Awards are the pinnacle of the year and showcase all the great work that has been completed during the previous awards cycle. This year’s awards cycle runs from 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2017.

This year we have a total of 24 categories recognising the very best activations, agencies, brands, campaigns, communications, events, governing bodies, innovations, platforms, programmes, rights holders, sponsorships and more. This includes the 3 awards categories available for entrants who operate in other territories within Africa and 4 awards categories open for individuals.

There are new criteria which have also been weighted for influence to account for a growing need in the evaluation process. This is the first time this has been introduced. Last year saw the some awards added, while this year is all about harmonising and improving these.

Following the excitement for the 2017 edition, where sport stars and celebrities like Lucas Radebe, Enhle Mbali, Matthew Booth, Tshepo Mokoena, Joanne Reynekke and Fezile Makhanya, celebrations for the 2018 edition promise to be of epic proportions.

We wait in enthusiastic anticipation for the entrants, shortlisters and finally winners of the 2018 Sport Industry Awards. See you there.
