As the curtain call for 2020 entries, Royalty Soapie Awards introduces two new categories.
This year the RSAs have added two Recognition Awards namely Social Cohesion, which will be awarded to a soapie production that has demonstrated and/or addressed the most current social affairs/social ills affecting our communities. The second recognition award will be awarded to a Background Actor in a soapie production that has been essential in creating the tone, mood and atmosphere of the soapie scene(s).
“Soapies have taken the educational role as they reflect our daily reality by including storylines that tackle our social ills head-on and challenges South Africans to have tough conversations. The Royalty Soapie Awards would like to recognize the show for their commitment to uplift and encourage Mzansi to do better” – Winnie Ntshaba, Founder and CEO of RSAs.
“The Background Actor Award is the beginning of the journey to opening the industry by showing appreciation to those that play a vital part in the background” – Ntshaba
