Big rewards for new talent thanks to Bridgestone
Johannesburg. Bridgestone South Africa will again present the Steve Dlamini Award for Excellence in Motoring Journalism at the 2014 SAGMJ / Toyota Financial Services Motoring Journalist of the Year awards ceremony on Jule 2nd, 2014. The Steve Dlamini Award for Excellence in Motoring Journalism was created to recognize the kind of excellence and passion that the late Steve Dlamini showed towards motoring journalism in his relatively short career.
Says Desirée van Niekerk of Bridgestone South Africa: “Bridgestone SA are again pleased to honour the memory of Steve Dlamini with this award. We recognise the kind of excellence and passion shown in this industry and we would like to congratulate the winner of the Bridgestone Steve Dlamini Award for Excellence in Motoring Journalism in advance for the enthusiasm and dedication with which he or she works in the motoring industry."
All entries into the various MJOY categories are automatically considered for this award, provided that the winner is a young, up and coming motoring journalist aged younger than 26, employed as a motoring journalist for at least two (but no more than five years) and who has been a member of the SAGMJ for less than five years.
The SAGMJ’s Motoring Journalist of the Year competition, sponsored by Toyota Financial Services South Africa since 2013, seeks to recognise excellence in motoring journalism and photography and to honour journalists and photographers who inform, enlighten and entertain readers, listeners or viewers. The SAGMJ believes that, through the presentation of these awards, its members will aspire to improve and advance the quality and standards of motoring journalism and photography in South Africa.
The 2014 SAGMJ / Toyota Financial Services Motoring Journalist of the Year awards take place on Wednesday, 2 July 2014.
