KZN NOMINEES (article first published : 2000-05-21)

In 1997, Business and Arts South Africa in collaboration with Business Day launched awards for business sponsors of the arts in South Africa. The idea was to recognise and highlight businesses who make effective and innovative use of arts sponsorship and thereby lift the profile of the arts. The recent third series of awards reflects a growing awareness within the business sector of promotional and marketing opportunities afforded through arts sponsorship.

This year’s awards listing saw many KZN businesses among the nominees. These included Transnet Limited which was nominated for the Transnet Theatre Trucks (such as the one used by the Playhouse Company) as well as the Massed Choir Festival.

Four companies received nominations in two categories: Umgeni Water for their support of Festival of Living Treasures; Casting Repair Services for providing studio and office space for the Fantastic Flying Fish Dance Company; Ashley and Radmore for the Winsor and Newton Millennium Painting Competition, and Adams Campus Bookshop for Time of the Writer and Poetry Africa.

The PG Group was nominated for the Field Band Foundation while The Independent on Saturday was nominated for a series of annual events, namely Red Eye @rt, the Battle of the Bands at the BAT Centre and the Durban Designer Collection.
