Sens-ational! This is what best describes the line-up for this year's PRISM Awards, the most sought-after awards in the public relations and communication industry. Taking place on Sunday 7 April at the Hilton Hotel in Sandton, the event will indulge all your senses - from the tantalising menu for taste, relaxing spa treatments for touch, smoking cocktails for smell, the stunning décor for sight and heart-pounding African dance and music for hearing.
"The PRISM Awards honour excellence and are a benchmark for best practice," says Bridget van Holdt, Convenor of the PRISM Awards. "This year we are bringing spirited entertainment and lively MCs for an evening of celebration and sophistication. This year's PRISM Awards are not to be missed!"

Radio personality Bailey Schneider, "the girl with the golden voice and infectious laugh" and Simba Mhere, one of the newest members of the Top Billing TV show family, will co-host the event.
"Bailey is very passionate about the public relations industry and she has the gift of the gab," says von Holdt. "We are looking forward to her bubbly personality glitzing up the PRISM Awards."
Simba Mhere, television personality
Co-MC Simba is really looking forward to working with Bailey and wants guests to enjoy themselves. "I just want to go with things," he says. "I'm not bringing a script, I am bringing my personality! I think what the PRISM Awards offer is impressive. It's a wonderful platform for up and coming people such as myself and incredibly beneficial for those in public relations and communication."

Daveyton-based entertainment organisation Thelane Theatre Productions will be providing the entertainment for the event. "The PRISM Awards for us is a big deal. We are eager to meet leaders in the public relations and communication industry," says Owner Neo Maje. "Guests can look forward to a skilful performance of African contemporary dance, with our unique twist of traditional African wear."
Creative Faces, a company specialising in henna art and airbrushing tattoos is adding a new sense of flair to the PRISM Awards with their 'adventure of colour'. "Guests will have the opportunity to choose from a range of tattoos," explains Surina Botha, Owner and Main Artist for Creative Faces. "The PRISM Awards offers 'off the charts' exposure and we want to be there to show creativity at its best!"
"Smoking Cocktails! Need I say more?" exclaims Robert Laverge, Operations and Sales Manager at Flair Bar, a specialised drinks company that will be on-hand to spoil guests with their delicious mix of cocktails. "Our smoking cocktails are a bit of a trade secret, but what I can tell you that they are like the cosmopolitan drink - but with smoke! We are truly looking forward to meeting fun, wacky people, such as ourselves, in the communication industry."
