We’re looking for African-based communication projects! The Silver Quill Awards are unique in the industry because they recognise work that makes a significant contribution to business outcomes.

I encourage you to get involved in this exciting awards programme by sending me your nominations, recognising those individuals that are showing leadership in the African Communication sector, who continue to push the limits through perseverance, innovation and dedication.
It is through this programme, that peers will have access to reliable communication practises and great communication ideas. It is through your projects and innovation that the African people of tomorrow will continue to deliver results and ensure that management sees communication as a key business driver and open new doors for you.
Either via email to or contact (Zanandi Allers on 076 624 8204). Based on your location, you will be advised to either mail your submission or hand deliver it to a specific location. This will be advised when you enter. All you have to do is:
This is the first year that the Africa Region embarks on rolling out the Africa Silver awards programme before the global Gold Quill awards process. This is not only to recognise local communication excellence but also to assist and prepare entrants for the global programme. Once you have SILVER – then go for the GOLD!!!
