Says BASA CEO Michelle Constant: "Throughout the past 15 years, the BASA Awards have rewarded excellence and innovation in the field of business support for the arts. They have successfully demonstrated the potential for synergy and the far reaching benefits for business, for the arts and for all South Africans."
"Businesses who have supported the arts in any way are certainly encouraged to use the extended deadline as an opportunity to enter this year's awards," adds Constant.
In total, the awards feature 15 categories with 12 of these being open for general entry. They cover a wide range of creative mediums such as visual arts, dance, theatre, physical performance, music, fashion, design and architecture.
Any company who sponsors the arts can enter and businesses do not have to be BASA members in order to enter nor do they have to have received funding from BASA in order to be eligible to enter a project for the BASA Awards.
