The KFM Best of The Cape Awards will hero listener-nominated businesses, entrepreneurs, activities and services with a uniquely Western Cape flavour. The public can nominate businesses in 30 categories until Thursday, 5 August and vote for category winners from Tuesday, 17 August to Wednesday, 25 August. After that it's up to the station’s one million listeners to ultimately decide who the winners are and who will be crowned the Best of the Cape!

All category winners will be announced on the station on Friday, 3 September. The announcement will also be live streamed on the KFM 94.5 Facebook page, and the winners promoted on various social media channels.

The KFM Best of The Cape Awards is spearheaded by KFM Mornings with Darren, Sherlin and Sibs. According to host Darren Simpson, the initiative is something he has personally wanted to do for years. "You know, I'm constantly amazed with how unique and different the businesses and people are in this province. I think it's time to celebrate and promote what makes us unique and support those businesses that make us who we are.”

KFM station manager Stephen Werner agrees. "The KFM Best of The Cape Awards is about people coming together to celebrate the beautiful place we call home – the best experiences, businesses and communities you won't find anywhere else in the world. Quite simply, celebrating the best of the best!"

Listeners and the public can nominate their favourite business, experience, community group or venue in 30 award categories on the KFM 94.5 website. Nominations are now open until Thursday, 5 August 2021.
