Gagasi FM Shero Awards celebrate KZN women

Posted by radio On August - 2 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS
The annual Gagasi FM Shero Awards are back. Every year in August, Gagasi FM celebrates women’s month through the Shero campaign. The campaign recognises and honours women who are making a significant difference in their communities.
Gagasi FM Shero Awards celebrate KZN women

While the campaign has been there for a number of years, last year the station introduced the awards element to take the campaign to new heights and to have a more tangible recognition of women who are the real imbokodos of KZN.

The call is now open to the public to send through names for nominees’ consideration. The entries will close on 2 August and the awards ceremony will be held on 11 August in Durban. The unique thing about Shero Awards is that it recognises not only women in the public spotlight, but also ordinary women in communities.

The primary criteria for the submission entries is that the chosen nominees’ work and contributions must fly the KZN flag high, contribute to the growth, development and national visibility of the KZN province and its community. All candidates must originally be from KZN even if they currently reside in a different province.

The list of categories is as follows:

  1. Creative Arts (Fine arts, poetry, literature, fashion and architecture)
  2. Entertainment and Music
  3. Sports
  4. Science and Technology
  5. Big Business Professional (Legal, medical, finance, etc.)
  6. Enterprise (Small businesses)
  7. Social Entrepreneurship
  8. Education
  9. Public Service (Police, nurse, etc.)
  10. Community Leadership
  11. KZN Ambassadors

The overall Shero Award

Every year the overall Shero Award is named after a South African female icon who has made a significant contribution or influence in the history of the country. Last year the overall Shero Award was named after Queen Nandi and this year it will be named after another national icon who will be announced in due course.The overall Shero Award is received by one of the 11 preselected Sheros and is awarded to that woman that best resonates with the value system and the characteristics of an icon that the award is named after in that year.

Panel of judges

A panel of independent judges will go through all the entries received and shortlist the nominees as per the categories above. This panel is made up of women only who are coming from various academic and professional backgrounds. All the shortlisted nominees will also go through the independent auditing process to ensure that they meet the requirements as per the terms and conditions of the awards.

“We are very happy with the campaign and the awards as it recognises KZN women who are making a mark in various walks of life, who are touching other people’s lives and are an inspiration to the next generation. The awards also come at a time when we continue to see violence against women happening in our communities. We hope that the Shero campaign and the awards will assist in the fight against women abuse and actually profile the roles that women play in uplifting our communities and building a better nation. We call upon people to submit their entries and join us in celebrating good work that our women are doing,” says Gagasi FM Head of Brand, Phinda Magwaza.

In the exciting build-up to the industry focused Market program of the Cape Town International Film Market and Festival (CTIFMF), a host of interventions such as the Works in Progress program have already been announced.
Another key component of this year’s CTIFMF Market will be the Audience Development program – entitled ENGAGE, with the specific aim of improving the capacity within the film industry to identify and develop markets for African films.
The CTIFMF realizes that one of the most challenging and pressing issues for local films is to earn the trust of local audiences that translates into box office success, as Elias Ribeiro explains, “CTIFMF in its commitment to harness and develop wider audiences will host a number free public screenings as part of the Festival Program in 2018. We hope to Engage the local community and learn from these experiments. These as well as the box office will inform the Audience Engagement Strategy exercise we will have to go through with the two winners of the Cash Prize our training program offers to the 2 participants who stand out.”
In order to address this challenge and ensure tangible outcomes, the CTIFMF will convene a group of marketing and industry experts with an understanding of these challenges.  A three-day outcome-based workshop, under the guidance of Valeria Richter, will equip these professionals with the most current and powerful tools designed to assist film teams in identifying their target market and core focus.
Valeria Richter mainly works as creative producer, scriptwriter and script consultant. She works in her own company, Nordic Factory Copenhagen, and has co-produced a host of features including Granny’s Dancing on the Table – Sweden 2015, Cora – Brazil 2018, The Feminist – Sweden 2018, and shorts, Nordic Factory at Directors’ Fortnight – DK/Finland 2014. She has won over 50 awards and was project manager for the Nordic Film & TV Fund led development initiative, Nordic Genre Boost (2015-17), and has worked for TorinoFilmLab (TFL) and the Baltic Event (BE) co-production market since 2008.
She developed the Audience Design approach and workshop program for TFL and has developed several concepts and formats for training for them and other clients. Additionally, both South Africa’s The Wound and Senegal’s Felicite, both of which received Oscar entries for their regions, went through the Valeria’s audience development program.
Valeria is currently writing and showrunning a TV-series in collaboration with Finnish production company Bufo. She holds an MA in Film & Media Science, is a graduate producer from the Danish Super16 Film Collective, and since 2009, member of the European Film Academy.
Valeria has this to say of her participation in the CTIFMF, “As with any form of marketing, there is never a guarantee that it leads to a film’s success in the market, the early audience engagement focus does however guarantee a strong platform to develop the marketing approach on, and it has a significant impact on the quality of the choices you make for your film as it meets the market, short term and long term.”
At the end of the workshop, each participant will be assigned a project from the WIP and will be expected to deliver an Audience Design Strategy with a cash prize awarded to the most prolific two of the lot, to craft an Audience Design Strategy in collaboration with the Festival Board for CTIFMF 2019.
Aimed at publicists, marketing and sales professionals, distributors and others within the field, applications are open until August 17th.  More details on the program, outcomes and prize can be found at www.filmfestival.capetown, or email zahrah@filmfest.capetown.
 
The overall program of the CTIFMF will also be made of 4 days of industry panels and workshops that will include experts from South Africa, the rest of Africa, and from across the globe.  There will be a variety of relevant topics covered, all aimed at inclusive and constructive dialogues that foster the development of a cohesive and continually developing film industry. These topics include mentorship, financing, AR/VR, blockchain and crypto currency, and animation.

Hailing from the rural village of KwaNgcolosi, twenty-nine-year old artist Buhle Mbambo opened his very first solo exhibition at the Durban Art Gallery on Tuesday evening where he unpacked a project inspired by his family history.

Wonder Buhle Mbambo is a young gentleman with a successful story as a rural artist who has made a name for himself and changed perception about art not being a career one can make a living out of. His passion for art started back in high, “I would always use my spare time to draw sketches and do some painting. We didn’t have it as a subject so I did physical science and mathematics” he told The Daily Vox in an interview.

 

Guests gathered at Durban Art Gallery to witness the work of the renowned artist and they experience nothing less than what you will experience at any other exhibition opening of an established artist. While guests were browsing through overwhelming art pieces by Wonder on the white walls of Durban Art Gallery, Pravda Vodka kept flowing to complement the evening.

Mbambo who was over the moon with the success of his solo show said, “As a Durban Artist I really appreciated the support from the Durban Municipality (Durban Art Gallery)  as well as from all the art lovers who came through to my show I can truly say had finally launched my career as an official South African Artist and I believe Ukumisa Insika is a journey towards a bigger dream and right now I am on the open road towards it”.

 

The success of this of course came not only because of Wonder’s talent only but because of a very supportive mother who was a domestic worker. After Wonder completed his matric he took a gap year and didn’t go to university because he didn’t know what he wanted to do, and it was never a big issue. After that year he had made up his mind that he wanted to study art and his mother was very supportive of the decision despite the fact that they grew up in a rural area where people weren’t familiar with art altogether, kudos to his mother who supported and encouraged him throughout and today he is a breadwinner at home.

 

The director of Durban Art Gallery Dr. Mduduzi Xakaza extended his gratitude to everyone who attended and supported the exhibition. “It was very generous of Pravda Vodka to sponsor the function with alcoholic beverages,” he said.

 

“The KwaNgcolosi traditional performance enhanced the meaning of the exhibition concept, and the audience was very enthusiastic, asking questions about further activities around the exhibition”. he conclude.

Ukumisa Insika is officially open for the public at Durban Art Gallery, weekdays 8am – 4pm until the 9th of September 2018.

Celebrate the 100th year of Mandela’s birth with DStv – a pop-up channel and an innovative app.

Wednesday 18 July is an important date on the 2018 calendar.  On the timeline of world history, it marks a hundred years since the birth of one of Africa’s most beloved icons, legendary statesman and Nobel Peace Prize winner Nelson Mandela.

On that day, DStv will launch a special five-day long pop-up channel to celebrate and honour the extraordinary life and legacy of Tata Madiba. DStv’s Mandela 100 Tribute Channel (DStv channel 199) will be available to all DStv customers across Africa.

 

Starting on Madiba’s birthday, Wednesday 18 July, at 19:00, the channel will feature an exceptional mix of films, documentaries, archive footage from M-Net’s multiple award-winning actuality programme Carte Blanche as well as exclusive celebrity interviews.

 

“Around the globe, Nelson Mandela is revered as a hero of the struggle and as the man who led South Africa to democracy.  While striving for justice and freedom and shaping a nation, he also changed the world with his humility and indomitable spirit. We are immensely proud to dedicate a unique pop-up channel to celebrate the life and legacy of this beacon of selflessness and reconciliation, who gave hope to millions,” says Yolisa Phahle, General Entertainment CEO, MultiChoice.

 

The channel, which was compiled for DStv by M-Net, Africa’s leading storyteller, is packed with programmes that paint a powerful picture of what it meant to be Madiba – and what Madiba has meant to the world.

 

Each night at 20:00 – from Wednesday 18 July to Saturday 21 July –  DStv customers across the continent can tune in for a new director’s cut, in the form of a four-part miniseries, of the landmark film The Long Walk to Freedom (2013), based on Mandela’s autobiography which focuses on his early life and 27 years in prison, and stars Idris Elba.

 

The Mandela 100 Tribute builds up to a heart-stopping climax on the final evening: Invictus(2009), the Hollywood blockbuster directed by Clint Eastwood, starring Morgan Freemanas Nelson Mandela and Matt Damon as Springbok rugby captain Francois Pienaar.

 

It is the true-life depiction of South Africa’s victory at the 1995 Rugby World Cup. Madiba famously walked on to the Ellis Park turf in the No 6 jersey, usually worn by Pienaar, to thunderous applause before the match – a stroke of genius that spurred the Springboks on to glory.

 

Other highlights include:

The Face of Unity – a documentary with previously unscreened footage and tributes from former US President Barack Obama; golf legend Jack Nicklaus; musical genius Ray Charles, and Hollywood luminaries Samuel L. Jackson and George Lucas.

 

In the Name of Mandela, War and Peace – a summary of the political history of South Africa from the time of the discovery of gold in 1886 up to the election of Nelson Mandela as President in 1994.

 

Mandela’s Unsung Heroes – an account of the Rivonia trial in which some of Nelson Mandela’s fellow accused in the trial, that led to his incarceration on Robben Island, share their memories.

 

Countdown to Freedom –  Narrated by James Earl Jones and Alfre Woodard, this independent documentary chronicles the behind-the-scenes lead-up to the rebirth of a nation and Nelson Mandela’s triumph in South Africa’s first free elections.

 

DStv customers can also access the Long Walk To Freedom miniseries, and Carte Blancheinserts on DStv Catch Up on their PVR and Explora decoders, as well as all the content from the channel on DStv Catch Up Plus through their connected Explora or on DStv Catch Up on DStv Now.

 

HISTORY Channel launches an app and more

To celebrate the 100th year of Nelson Mandela’s birth, HISTORY (DStv channel 186) and streaming live on DStv Now, will launch an app inviting viewers to share their personal stories or moments with Mandela. The innovative campaign includes pieces curated from interviews with amongst others Bill Clinton, Alfre Woodard, Robert De Niro, Richard Branson and Bono to local stars and politicians like Devi Sankaree Govender, Basetsana Kumalo,  Saleem Mowver, Cheryl Carolus, President Cyril Ramaphosa and Bongani Bingwa. The moments will be shared live across digital and linear throughout the month of July and into August.

 

HISTORY is also giving these viewers an opportunity to be heard and become a part of the campaign by sharing their own stories on how they met Madiba, via the HISTORY app.

 

The app will allow participants to be on the platform and will allow each story to have a choice of two filter options with a selection of background music to choose from.  Selected stories will be shown and shared across their personal social media platforms, as well as showcased on History’s Facebook page.

 

Yusuf Nabee, General Manager of A+E Networks Africa says, “We are excited to launch an app that enables viewers to generate their own content and to share their moment/s with the icon that was Nelson Mandela. This initiative is supported by the Nelson Mandela Foundation.”

 

In addition, during the birthday week, special relevant programming from 16 – 22 July includes:

Idris Elba: Mandela, My Dad and Me – 16 July

Monday – 19:15

In 2013, actor Idris Elba produced and released ‘Mi Mandela’, an album inspired by his time researching and portraying Nelson Mandela in ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’. This special documents one man’s struggle in producing his first album.

 

 

Mandela City – 17 July   

Tuesday, 19:15

The formidable racial prejudice that Nelson Mandela encounters on moving to Johannesburg, South Africa’s biggest city, leads to his rapid politicisation and fight to topple apartheid. The programme charts the events that began one of the most legendary civil rights campaigns of the 20th century.

 

Mandela Country – 18 July

Wednesday, 19:15

The unique story of Nelson Mandela’s early years. Born in one of the most rural parts of South Africa, Mandela is adopted by the Thembu royalty after the death of his father, but the lure of the city is more powerful than an aristocratic lifestyle in the country and Mandela flees to Johannesburg.

Mandela Rivonia – 19 July            

Thursday, 19:15

An uncompromising insight into the darkest days of Mandela’s life as he becomes the world’s most famous prisoner. Despite lengthy incarceration in an apartheid prison, Nelson Mandela overcomes indignity and harshness to begin the negotiations that will eventually lead to a democratic South Africa.

Flat 13 – 20 July            

Friday, 19:20

This is the story of the apartment in downtown Johannesburg that, between the late 1940s and early 1960s, became a hub of resistance against apartheid. Nelson Mandela described it as the place where “the first seeds of non-racialism were sown and a wider concept of the nation came into being.” He was concerned that history accurately record the role played by all freedom-loving people towards the final liberation of the country.

Mandela Tribute: Farewell Father – 22 July

Sunday, 20:15

Celebrating the great stateman’s life and the achievements he brought about through his leadership, from the inception of the ANC, imprisonment and the presidency.

In keeping with the milestone week, HISTORY will be opened to DStv customers on DStv Compact, Family and Access from 16 to 23 July. Customers don’t have to do anything to get the channel as it will automatically be made available on their package.
