The 9th Annual South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTAs) has introduced a new Best Presenter Award and the public will decide which presenter receives the award. This is the only award category in the SAFTAs that is voted for by the public.
Last year the public got to vote for their favourite soapie but in keeping with the ‘Coming of Age’ theme, the SAFTAs judges agreed to open a different public voting line and to honour the presenters who keep their audiences informed and entertained.
The public are encouraged to vote for their favourite presenter by sms-ing the corresponding number of their chosen presenter to 33100, at a cost of R1.50 per sms. The winner will be announced on Sunday 22 March at the SAFTAs main event to be held in Johannesburg.
