“Our time is now as Africans to define what Africa is about. The tourism industry has got a huge role to play in terms of painting that picture” – Masingita Mazibuko, Marketing Consultant

Earlier this year we called on you to explain how you are innovating to tell the next chapter of African travel, and you didn’t disappoint. From Ethiopia to Mauritius, Namibia to Chad: you enthralled us with your inspiring, moving and exciting stories of how your brand is representing modern Africa.

With competition hotter than ever, we couldn’t possibly whittle down the shortlist ourselves: so we handed the honour over to our panel of African cultural specialists last month at the elegant Ellerman House.

Here’s what they had to say…

Now, it’s over to you to choose the winners – and there’s just one day left to cast your vote. With every shortlisted entry being worthy in our eyes, it’s going to be a tough call…

Head to our Awards page to check out the shortlist in detail and VOTE NOW – and remember, only votes from 2016 delegates will be counted!
