Arts & Culture Trust Awards 2002 finalists announced

In a press release this week, the Arts & Culture Trust gave the names of the finalists for this year's list of prizes. The annual ACT Awards aim to improve the conditions under which the arts in South Africa are produced by acknowledging the fine support work done by individuals, organisations and agencies, both local and international. The awards recognise the most important supportive and developmental roles given to the arts in any one year. They are a celebration of excellence in areas often hidden behind the scenes of public events.

This year the awards attracted a wide range of entries in the various categories. It is an indication of the status conferred by winning an ACT award that the competition for one is intense.

The panel of judges comprises: art journalist Gwen Ansell; independent arts and culture consultant Bongi Dhlomo-Mautloa; Nise Malange, director of the BAT Centre Trust; assistant editor of City Press, Sandile Memela; and media studies expert Professor John van Zyl.
