New Mondi Shanduka Newspaper category

South African newspaper journalists are invited to enter the seventh annual Mondi Shanduka Newspaper Awards, which will be calling for entries towards the middle of November 2007. The prize money has been increased to R15 000 per category winner and an additional category – Popular Journalism – has been included to cater for tabloid journalists.

The deadline for entries is earlier than usual – Friday 25 January 2008 – so avoid that last-minute, post-New Year rush and start gathering your best work from 2007 now!

The awards evening will take place at the Wanderers Club in Illovo, Johannesburg on 9 April 2008.

If you are interested in receiving an entry kit, contact Sandipa Shah Seeparsad at the Newspaper Association of South Africa on tel +27 (0)11 721 3200 or email . Entry kits will also be available for download from from 19 November 2007.
