Me? Journalist of the Year?

12 May

Just now, as in about 5 minutes ago, I received an email saying that I am nominated for the Journalist of the Year Award and Best Print Award in the inaugural 2011 BrandHouse Responsible Drinking awards. I frankly have no idea what to say as I did not expect this. I obviously liked my story on drinking and driving in South Africa (For Mobility magazine), and the costs (in terms of lives and money) that are involved, but to say that I expected a nomination? Not really.

Anyway – here is a copy of my story. And please remember: Do not drink and drive. It might end up being a very expensive / deadly few drinks.

    Hay way to go Miriam!

    Congratulations girl this could be your year you know… Would be nice if you got the award and loads of publicity so you could shove it to that ex-A Hole so called boyfriend of yours :-0)

    Good luck
    Best regards
