Comic-Con Africa Gets New Award Show

The South African Gaming awards are set to become the highlight of Comic-Con Africa 2019

Dec 12, 2018

South African Comic-Con organizers Reed Exhibitions unveiled their plans for the first South African Gaming Awards at Comic-Con Africa 2019 set to take place September 21-24.

“On the back of the roaring success of the inaugural Comic Con Africa earlier this year we came to the realization that there is no platform of this nature on the African continent where those who are excelling in the gaming industry have an opportunity to be acknowledged. We want to bring peers and like-minded individuals together to celebrate this industry and build this community across the board,” said Carol Weaving, Managing Director of Reed Exhibitions.

Reed seems to hint that the awards might be a place for African game creators to showcase their work. Judging by the reaction online, the South African gaming community seems eager for a platform to highlight the amazing work being done by dedicated game makers in the country and in Africa at large as well. 

Categories and the selection process for the awards will be detailed early next year.
