Project coordinator Stacey Takane said their guidelines restricted content without an actual official broadcaster.

Content producers YouTube, Instagram and Facebook will be honored for the first time at the 15th edition of the South African Film and Television Awards (Saftas).

Saftas project coordinator Stacey Takane tells us more.

Every year at Saftas, we look at how we can improve and make sure we stay in tune with the times. When we talked about it, it was so critical because we felt there was too much credible and excellent content and it was not being rewarded because our guidelines are so restrictive because they are more of a true official broadcaster.

We felt it was essential and important for us to open it up to promising young talent creating amazing work to be included in the awards.

Just because you don’t have the option of being on an official broadcaster or VOD platform doesn’t mean you don’t create amazing work. So it’s an opportunity for these guys to have opportunities and to meet other people.

Why not include TikTok?

This is a relatively new category and what we would like to do with the new categories is to start quite small. If you look at the content on TikTok, it’s pretty massive. We just figured that for now let’s start small and this expands into multiple categories and in the future we will have TikTok as one of the categories there.
