Best of Bloemfontein winners to be announced


The time has finally arrived for Bloemfontein Courant to celebrate and put a feather in the caps of all the great businesses in Bloemfontein who went beyond the call of duty to deliver excellent service to the people of the City of Roses, despite trying circumstances.

Although we can’t have a live event this year, due to Covid-19 regulations, the Best of Bloemfontein Readers’ Choice Awards, which is proudly sponsored by FNB for the third year in a row, will be a memorable event, nevertheless.

Apart from the bumper winners’ edition to be published on Thursday 29 October 2020, Bloemfontein Courant will also publish a series of 10 videos on its Facebook page to announce the winners in the different categories and celebrate their achievements in grand style.

Bloemfontein Courant didn’t leave a stone unturned to make the virtual presentation of the results a special occasion. The videos, which will be posted on Courant’s Facebook on Thursday morning, will feature short scenes shot at the winners’ business premises.

This will include short interviews with the three winners of a special category, BESTof2020 Voters’ Favourite, that was introduced this year to reward and pay tribute to those businesses who went the extra mile during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic to still render service of great quality.

The three winners will each walk away with R30 000 in advertising spend, plus a free radio production. R50 000 of the total prize amount was sponsored by FNB – an amount which was matched by the Central Media Group.

So brace yourselves for a virtual awards ceremony like you have never seen before. Also make sure to get your copy of the Best of Bloemfontein results issue to hit the streets early on Thursday.
