“All stops will be out to ensure that Pendoring’s Cape Town debut is an unforgettable occasion that will rock Cape Town to its core,” says Pendoring GM Franette Klerck. “To assist Pendoring guests with special travel and accommodation arrangements, Pendoring

More prizes for Pendoring
winners are also on the cards this year: besides the usual R6 000 cash, Pendoring
trophy and framed certificate for each gold category winner and an overseas study trip for the winner of the Prestige Award
, this year the overall winner in the category ‘Truly South African’ will also receive a whopping R20 000.
In addition, the winner of a gold Pendoring
in the radio category will receive R75 000 commercial airtime from Ofm
, provided the winning advertisement was scheduled on Ofm. Should there be more than one winner, each one will receive commercial airtime of R50 000 from Ofm, provided the winning advertisement was scheduled on Ofm. On top of this, the advertiser of the Prestige Award recipient will receive free airtime/advertising space from participating Pendoring partners in excess of R2-million.
Besides rewarding the cream of the Afrikaans and South African advertising crop at the gala event, popular performers and groups like Afrikaaps, Bittereinder, Jack Parow, Sterling EQ and Tumi Molekane will provide more hot entertainment than ever, Klerck reckons.
As MCs, the charming Elma Smit, 5fm DJ and MK presenter, along with the entertaining TV personality and presenter Soli Philander, will give the event even more spark, she adds. And as always, guests will once again be treated to welcoming drinks, a five-star meal fit for a king and goodie bags, sponsored by eNuus.
To celebrate in true Pendoring spirit, the ever-popular after party at The Assembly, sponsored by MK, will also feature again.
“In line with this year’s Pendoring campaign theme, Vat Oor, the awards evening will also have a number of highly entertaining surprises that should go down well with the audience and which they will remember for years to come. Briefly, not only must Cape Town remember Pendoring’s awards evening as a premier showcase of excellent Afrikaans and truly South African advertising, but also for its superb entertainment,” stresses Klerck.
