Brand South Africa’s Play Your Part Awards is an ambitious project that has been celebrating 10 years of the Play Your Part Programme by recognising and acknowledging active citizens throughout South Africa.
The Awards are a symbol of the impact that the Programme has had over the past decade, but more importantly a reminder of the passion, kindness, innovation, strength and resilience of the South African people.
Entries have poured in for the awards and its nine categories throughout 2021 and 2022. Winners were selected by a panel of high profile judges, namely Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Paul Modjadji, York Zucchi and Firdoze Bulbulia. And whilst there could be only one winner per category, it was unbelievable to see so many exceptional entries of inspiring citizens doing incredible work.
The Play Your Part Awards Ceremony, which will take place in Johannesburg on 17 March 2022, is the culmination of the year-long campaign, where category winners will be presented with their awards. Moreover, the winner of the flagship Play Your Part Award will be announced, and all category winners are nominees. So it goes without saying, that the anticipation is growing as the reveal of the overall winner will be announced in just two weeks.
Adding to the excitement is that fact that over the next couple of weeks, the winners for the final four categories (Job Creation, Social Cohesion, Education and Environment) will be revealed in the lead up to the awards.
In lieu of Play Your Part’s 10 Year Anniversary, the flagship Play Your Part Award is the final and 10th award up for grabs, with the previous 9 awards being category specifics.
10 outstanding examples of South African Excellence.
