This year the categories have been combined into Media of the Year.

Lifetime Achievement Award: Joyce Levinsohn, Beata Lipman and Elizabeth Sneddon and Percy Tucker. Professor Elizabeth Sneddon is a doyenne of Durban theatre and very few people in the arts have not been touched directly or indirectly by her vigorous support and clear vision.

The winners will be announced at a gala function in Johannesburg on October 11, 2001.
