SABC 3 announced today, 15 September 2020, that many of their high-profiled shows have bagged nominations for the Content Innovation Awards which is scheduled to be held in London in December 2020. The shows have been honoured for their unique formats which have built a solid viewership which allows them to compete on the global stage. Shanitha Rathilal Bhageloo, SABC 3 Head of Genre stated, “The SABC TV contents’ entertainment department is proud of the Content Innovation Awards nominations it received this year. All five nominated shows are unique and it is encouraging to be recognised as South Africans. Shows of this nature invite regional participation and are expensive to produce but thanks to our sponsors, we were able to materialise them with such high production values and opportunities. These shows have not only done well for the SABC but the prizes were life-changing for the winners in each series and will have a long term impact on their careers and we are thrilled to see these productions get the international recognition they deserve.”
