BUSINESS DAY/BASA AWARDS (article first published : 2002-02-11)

Commercial enterprises or corporate businesses who sponsored the arts during 2001 should enter the fifth Business Day/Basa Awards for business and the arts. Arts organisations should also nominate their sponsor. The closing date for entries is February 28.

These awards, jointly sponsored by Business Day and Business and Arts South Africa, recognise and encourage excellence and innovation in the field of business support for the arts. The Awards are open to all companies sponsoring arts events, projects or organisations in South Africa, and all companies sponsoring South African arts events overseas.

The 2001 Awards will relate to sponsorships made during the calendar year, from January 1 to December 31. This includes long-term or ongoing sponsorships current during that period. There are ten business awards in ten categories, each of equal value. In each case, a specially commissioned work of art will be given to the winning sponsor.

BASA will appoint an independent panel of judges, which will evaluate the success of each sponsorship in achieving the objectives of the sponsor and in bringing genuine benefits to the arts organisation. Factors such as geographical location, access for marginalised groups such as the disabled, the size of the sponsoring company and the innovative nature of the sponsorship will be taken into account.

All businesses that have sponsored any arts organisation, project or event, in any discipline or disciplines (visual and performing arts, music, theatre, dance literature, poetry, festival etc) are invited to enter for these awards. In cases where sponsorship has been shared, all sponsoring companies are eligible for nomination.

The nomination/entry form may be completed by the sponsoring company and/or the arts organisation, except in the Strategic Sponsorship category which must be completed by the business itself.

A shortlist of nominations in each category will be published in April 2002, followed by the awards presentation and publication of a survey profiling corporate sponsors of the arts in May.

The closing date for entries is February 28. Contact Business and Arts South Africa for more information and nomination/entry forms at 011 784-9994/5 or fax 011 784-9996 or e-mail info@basa.co.za
