The BBQ Awards is an annual event planned and hosted by Cape Media Corporation, publishers of BBQ (Black Business Quarterly) Magazine.

Nominate your champion of business transformation today!  The countdown has begun to the 18th annual BBQ Awards, the glittering showcase of world-class South African talent that has become a popular fixture on the South African business events calendar.

South Africa’s most prestigious and longest-running black business awards ceremony, the BBQ Awards provides a platform for our champions of transformation to shine, in the hope that millions more will be inspired and emboldened by the proof of their success. These are the visionaries whose efforts ensure that the economy evolves towards a truly representative state, all the while creating jobs that enable the mothers and fathers of the nation to put food on the table, educate their children and cultivate their own entrepreneurial plans.

Widely recognised as South Africa’s key black awards function, the BBQ Awards is attended by 1000 of South Africa’s most influential black business people, entrepreneurs, and industrialists. This prestigious event on the black business calendar has been addressed in the past by Minister Susan Shabangu, Minister Jeff Radebe, and businessman Tokyo Sexwale, to name but a few. This year we will be inviting President Cyril Ramaphosa, who is no stranger to business success himself, to deliver the keynote address.

The winners of the BBQ Awards are selected following an inclusive nomination process in which all persons with a vested interest in South Africa’s economic growth and transformation are urged to participate.  There are multiple entry categories, so nominate your champion for the BBQ Awards today by completing the form on our website or emailing

To nominate a company or individual in one of the 14 categories (including Best Employer of the Year, Community Builder of the Year, Transformation Champion of the Year, Outstanding Woman in Business, Public Sector Visionary and Young Business Achiever), visit the BBQ Awards website and complete the nomination form.
Nominations close on 15 January 2020.
