The awards also hope to encourage media practitioners in member SADC states to cover issues pertaining to the region. The awards were established following a decision by the Council of Ministers in 1996 to establish a sector that deals with matters relating to, amongst others, information, culture and sport.

These awards serve as part of ensuring a link, coordination and synchronisation between formal structures of SADC governments, civil society, academia, labour and the media.

Journalists who wish to enter the competition can access more information about the competition, including competition rules, from the following links: Entry form; rules; and post or deliver entries to the National Adjudication Committee by 28 February 2019, at the following addresses:
