The Best Single Issue category is the competition's most comprehensive, and most coveted award. Leadership won this highly prestigious prize with its December 2013 issue, a special tribute to the life and times of South Africa's greatest ever son, Nelson Mandela, in conjunction with AMC today.
The judges described this collector's item issue as "overall, a beautiful issue that says farewell to a great man and leader in a dignified manner. The writing and reporting is crisp and touching, and the entire issue would sell on any newsstand".
