ICE Africa registration goes live

Posted by radio On April - 12 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

The visitor marketing campaign for ICE Africa 2018 (24-25 October, Johannesburg, South Africa) is officially underway with registration going live at www.iceafrica.za.com. The much awaited event, which will be the first occasion the ICE brand has been deployed outside of the United Kingdom, will comprise an exhibition and co-located ICE VOX style conference programme dedicated to the development of the industry on the Continent, which has a population of 1.6 billion people, 68% of whom are under the age of 27.

Dan Stone, Senior Marketing Manager at Clarion Gaming, said: “At ICE London 2017, we were asked by prominent members of the industry if we would explore the feasibility of organising and launching a professional B2B event for what is one of world gaming’s most dynamic and exciting growth markets. Our first step was the launch of Gaming Africa in 2017, which we have transitioned to ICE Africa, the first time the ICE brand has travelled outside the UK.  More than six months ahead of the opening ceremony, the level of interest is significant with key supporters, speakers, sponsors and media ready to engage with gaming’s newest event brand.”

 

 

He added: “Whilst the scale of ICE Africa will not be the same as ICE London, we will be bringing the same level of commitment, thinking, creativity and professionalism that has made ICE London the world’s favourite B2B gaming event.”

 

 

ICE Africa is part of the Clarion Gaming stable of events and publications for the international gaming community, including: intelligence resources Totally Gaming and iGaming Business; the Totally Gaming Academy training series, and a full portfolio of conferences and exhibitions, including ICE London, iGB Live!, regional Gaming Congresses, the WrB series and the Affiliate Conference series.

eTV to air award winning Winnie documentary

Posted by radio On April - 10 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

eMedia is proud to bring Pascale Lamche’s award-winning documentary Winnie to the small screen this week.

This illuminating work brings fresh perspective and insight into the life of the anti-apartheid activist and human rights advocate Nomzamo Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

 

The documentary won a Sundance Award in 2017.

 

 

Winnie explores Mandikizela-Mandela’s contribution to the struggle against apartheid from inside the country and includes interviews with Madikizela-Mandela herself, those who were closest to her, and those who sought to extinguish her radical capacity to shake up the order of things.

 

 

 

“With acquisition of the rights to Winnie, the eMedia Group is proud to contribute to the collective understanding of our history, as we continue to do every day in our various media properties,”  says eMedia Holdings CEO says Andre van der Veen.

“We are particularly excited to be able to offer this award-winning production to our OpenView viewers as part of our commitment to bringing high-quality content to our free-to-air satellite platform. We have also made a library of our key Winnie Mandela interviews and stories available on our YouTube channel so that our viewers are able to watch these enlightening interviews at their convenience.”

 

Mapi Mhlangu, MD and editor-in-chief of eNCA says:”In South Africa we have lived through turbulent times, and coming to terms with that history is often difficult. The passage of time often distorts as much as it allows for better insight into the past.  Making sense of that past remains absolutely key to imagining a better future, though. In that spirit we hope that this documentary will help many South Africans confirm what they already know, gain new insight into what they have long believed about our collective history, but also, to help inform how we remember someone as important to our history as Nomzamo Winnie Madikizela Mandela.

 

 

“The life of this singular woman is indeed humbling, and holds many lessons for those of us who have benefited from her work over her long life,” says Mhlangu.

 

Marlon Davids, e.tv’s head of channels, says: “We look forward to scheduling Winnieon e.tv and on Openview to enable South Africans to see this excellent film in their numbers.”

 

 

Lamche’s account of the political life of Madikizela-Mandela includes fascinating archival footage, extensive interviews with her, her daughter Zindzi, and those who sought her downfall. Though firmly on the side of Winnie, this film nonetheless offers a unique perspective of recent South African history. In the process, it restores Madikizela-Mandela as a key figure in the liberation of South Africa.

 

 

The documentary will premiere on eNCA on Wednesday, 11 April, at 9pm, after which it will broadcast to all South Africans on e.tv and OpenView.

9 Days to Go: JYDC Production

Posted by radio On April - 10 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

Jozi Youth Dance Company (JYDC), presents their 4th annual production called Domaine, from 19 – 22 April 2018 at the Roodepoort Theatre.

Jozi Youth Dance Company is a one of its kind, platform for young dancers, exposing them to professional choreographers and dancers. They gain invaluable experience, performing to sold out audiences, preparing them for the cut-throat dance industry.

 

This is JYDC’s 4th season and promises to be one of their best yet. This year we present to you Domaine (translated from French, meaning “realms”).

 

Our dancers will involve the audience, taking them on a journey through different worlds, stepping seamlessly from one existence to the next.

 

Over the past 4 years, JYDC have welcomed young dancers from all over Gauteng in order to give them a platform to showcase their talent and inspire the next generation of professional dancers. Under the directorship of Jayd Swart, the company has grown, not only in number but also quality of dance.  “Young dancers need to be given the opportunity to show what they are capable of.  We train them in both technique and expression and motivate them to achieve new heights while preparing them for a future in dance” said Swart.

 

Domaine, the largest and most spectacular of shows produced by JYDC is guaranteed to set the stage on fire.  “This year, we have the most magnificent lineup of choreographers, each bringing their own distinct personality to the stage” said Swart.  Choreographers include, Shannon Glover, principle dancer from Johannesburg Ballet, Phume Sikhakhane and Kingsley Beukes, both cast members of Disney’s theatrical production of The Lion King currently performing in Asia, Evan Van Soest, professional dancer and choreographer, Cayley Hodson, resident choreographer of JYDC and Jayd Swart herself who is a well-established international contemporary dance choreographer.

 

As an added bonus, Bernice Silvius, ex-prima ballerina from Johannesburg ballet is training two young aspiring ballerinas, both pupils at Northcliff High School to perform a pas de deux from the famous Don Quixote with Conrad Nusser, principle dancer from Cape Town City Ballet and in true JYDC nature a student, Paige Sundelson, has been afforded the opportunity to choreograph a piece on her peers, also to be showcased in Domaine.

 

JYDC has opened up many doors for company members including a training tour to South-Korea in 2017.  This year, the production forms part of the Grahamstown National Arts Festival line-up.

For more information on the production, Domaine or auditions for the next season, please contact Jayd Swart on 076 213 8867 or e-mail jycontemp@gmail.com

Panel discussions during the Summit will feature expertise from leading African entrepreneurs, investors and executives, and will highlight those companies looking to scale to new African markets and the partners who can help them succeed. Topics include a debate over the best African country to start a business; a discussion of the latest fintech, agritech and blockchain innovations, why women code better, and more.

Through casting their vote, listeners also stand a chance of winning a R 40 000 cash prize and a VIP experience for them and a partner to the 2018 Liberty Radio Awards. In excess of 120 000 votes were cast.

 

Killy Bacela, Divisional Director of Group Brand & Marketing at Liberty says: “The MyStation award is a testimony to the stations that raise the bar and create excellent radio that inspires and motivates their listeners to take the time to vote in this particular category. These stations understand the value of determination and unwavering focus required for the successful delivery of real, credible and meaningful content to an appreciative audience.”

Posted by radio On April - 7 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

Following the recent appointment of Alistair Mokoena as CEO, Ogilvy has spent some months finding just the right person to fill his previous position as MD of Ogilvy Johannesburg, where Alistair served for three years. We’re happy to announce that we have finally found her in Elouise Kelly!

She built brand loyalty and awareness through interactive marketing campaigns, leading a 130-person team.
