ANNOUNCED: Royalty Soapie Awards – Nominees for the Technical and Creative categories

7de Laan, Binneland, Generations, Isibaya, Isidingo and The Wild dominate the technical and creative category finalists for the much anticipated inaugural Royalty Soapie Awards.

The Royalty Soapie Awards were launched in April 2013 to honour and recognise excellence in the South African soap opera productions.

Awards will be presented in twenty categories, eighteen of which are adjudicated by a panel of judges. Nine categories cover creative and technical aspects while the remaining nine recognise achievement in acting. The nineteenth category is decided by the public for the Most Popular Soapie of the Year and the twentieth category is awarded for Lifetime Achievement in the South African Soap Opera Industry as decided by the Royalty Soapie Awards Steering Committee.

“Central to the purpose of these awards is to promote creativity, quality and excellence of local productions,”

said Royalty Soapie Awards project director Sindile Xulu.

“The technical and creative areas are the bedrock of great productions and it is in this regard that our first finalist’s announcement focusses on these categories. All too often it is easy to rather discuss the more popular categories concerning the actors, and overlook these other critical areas. We hope the industry and the public will take time to review our standards in the technical and creative spheres, because it is these areas that make the difference between an average production or a sterling soap opera.”

Judging has already taken place and auditing of the process is done by leading audit firm KPMG.

The finalists for the creative and technical categories are as follows;
