So proud of how well our team at Primedia Broadcasting did at this year’s Bookmarks Awards, South Africa’s digital industry’s very own Oscars. 

Our awards included a Silver for Publisher sites (mass appeal) – Eye Witness News, a Bronze for Editorial – 947. And the biggie for the night an Honors Award for Best Publisher – Eye Witness News!

Beating out the biggest news websites in the country for this accolade was such a thrill for the small but amazingly talented and committed EWN team. As the digital content (mama) manager that watches over just how hard they work to push the envelope every day, I couldn’t be any prouder!
