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.
