The highlight of the African Excellence Awards is the Winners Day in Cape Town on 21 April 2016, where communications professionals come together to celebrate the best in PR over the last year. The winners day will include a Symposium and a Winners Dinner.





The winners of the Awards will give a short presentation to an audience of other winners, Jury members and communication experts that have not entered the Awards but want to get an insight view on the most successful campaigns and projects in Africa. We encourage you to take this opportunity and meet the other winners, network with the Jury members and exchange knowledge within your peer group.
