South Africa: Prepare for Highway Africa 2013

Technology & Convergence

Highway Africa is gearing up for the 17th edition of Highway Africa Conference, themed 'Speaking truth to power?', will take place from 1-2 September 2013 at Rhodes University in Grahamstown, Eastern Cape, South Africa.

The conference will host the 12th edition of the Telkom-Highway Africa New Media Awards. With new categories, these awards seek to award individual journalists, bloggers and media houses who innovatively use Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) in their reportage.

The awards also seek to acknowledge corporate and not-for-profit organisations who might not be media operators, but whose operations use ICTs to better communities within which they operate.

The awards are pan-African and media houses around the continent can apply. Organisations outside the African continent can apply only if the communities within which their ICT services are used is in Africa.
