We are the champions

There really is no better feeling than being recognised by your peers for excellence in your industry. We were elated and very proud to have been named the Best Get It Magazine in the country at the annual Caxton Excellence Awards in Johannesburg recently.

The Caxton Awards are kind of a big deal. Hundreds of magazine and newspaper owners, managers, editors, journalists, designers, sales reps and support staff come together once a year to select the best-of-the-best in the group.

This year the Renaissance-themed awards took place at the lavish Maslow Hotel Time Square in Pretoria and guests from around the country came together, dressed in their best, to see who the winners would be.

We were thrilled to take home two of the biggest awards of the night: Best Get It Magazine and Best Get It Journalist, which was awarded to our journalist and online coordinator, Monique De Villers-Delport. Monique has been working for Get It for eight years and is passionate about her job. “Sharing the stories of the people and places in our area is an incredible honour and walking away with this prize after eight years of working for the title is the most amazing accolade,” she says. We are lucky to have Monique on our team – it was a well-deserved win! 

When the judges announced Get It Ballito.Umhlanga as the best magazine in the group, they commended us on the pagination and said we could hold our own against other sold consumer magazines.

The Get It Ballito.Umhlanga is published by the Wordsmiths Group. Managing director Pieter Naude had this to say about the win, “the Ballito Umhlanga Get It magazine is without a doubt one of the best reads of its kind in the country and this national recognition serves to confirm this. Innovation and creativity are cornerstones of today’s media environment and Leah and her team have turned it into an art form, making the Get It a vibrant and personal experience that exceeds expectations and (like payday) makes readers look forward to it every month.”
