DAIMLERCHRYSLER AWARD (article first published : 2004-11-2)

Eight exciting young poets nominated for the DaimlerChrysler Award for South African Poetry will celebrate the beauty and diversity of Poetry with readings and performances on November 3 at Kippies, Newtown, in Johannesburg.

Nominees Gabeba Baderoon, Vonani Bila, Bernat Kruger, Maakomele Mac Manaka, Danie Marais, Napo Masheane, Lebogang Mashile and Ilse van Staden will have the opportunity to perform their work to the public and a jury panel alike as part of the final round of adjudication. Admission is free and the poetry readings commence at 10h00.

Sponsoring a different discipline of the arts every year, the DaimlerChrysler Arts Award has over the past five years recognised artists within the fields of contemporary art, jazz, sculpture, choreography and creative photography.

The 2005 award for Poetry recognises the important contribution this literary culture makes to the art scene. The selection panel responsible for the nominations consisted of Robert Berold, Prof André P. Brink, Prof Michael Chapman, Prof Keorapetse Kgositsile, Prof Bhekizizwe Peterson, Dr Alfred Schaffer, Raks Seakgoa and Indra Wussow.

The winner, who will be announced at a cocktail function on November 4, will receive a handsome cash prize and a volume of his/her work will be published.

Devised in 1999 and presented for the first time in 2000, the DaimlerChrysler Award is a unique sponsorship project within the context of the group’s patronage of the arts. The aim of the award is to promote the artistic and cultural life of South Africa and to acknowledge these as reflections of the country’s maturity in respect of social and political development.
