UCT has claimed two prizes in the African Excellence Awards 2017, which celebrate excellence in public relations and communications.

In the Science and Education category, UCT achieved first place for The South African Child Gauge 2016.

The publication focused on how South Africa’s Child Support Grant (CSG) has benefited approximately 12 million South African children and reflected on the challenges ahead as the grant matures into a well-established element of social protection policy.

Keeping up with the graduates, a series of short videos that tells the stories of selected graduates during UCT’s June 2016 graduation season, won third place in the Film and Video category.

The winners of the second African Excellence Awards will be honoured during an intimate dinner in Johannesburg on 29 June 2017 where they will receive their trophies and celebrate with their peers.
