NAT NAKASA AWARD

SA journalists honoured for covering the Covid-19 pandemic (Video)

By SANEF 23 August 2020

The South African National Editors Forum (SANEF) has awarded its coveted Nat Nakasa Award to all journalists who have been covering the Covid-19 pandemic. The announcement was made on 22 August with the airing of a documentary commissioned to commemorate the vital role journalists play in our society – especially in light of the harsh circumstances journalists as individuals find themselves in during the pandemic. The documentary, which was filmed while the country still remained under national lockdown regulations, aims to shine a light on the courageous work done by South African journalists on the frontlines in a time of great unease and continued stress due to the global pandemic.
