Presented by the Forum of Community Journalists

The Annual Local Media Excellence Awards is aimed at encouraging excellence and rewarding meritorious work and was previously sponsored and organised by Sanlam, who has unfortunately decided to terminate its participation in the annual local media awards .
The competition has always been presented under the auspices of the FCJ, so the management committee has decided that the competition will continue. The FCJ has also decided to rename the competition to The Annual Local Media Excellence Awards and will be organising the competition. We have re-introduced two categories: editorial comment and headlines.
The Local Media Excellence Awards is open to any editorial staff member (permanent or freelance) working for a local print newspaper or magazine in South Africa.
The competition covers the period 1 January 2015 to 31 December 2015 and the closing date for entries is 31 March 2016. The awards ceremony will be held in May 2016. Details to follow.
