M&G’s Sipho Kings scoops SAB journalism awards

Sipho Kings was the winner in the South African Breweries (SAB) Environmental Media awards print category and received the Magqubu Ntombela and Ian Player Cub Award for a journalist with less than five years' experience. He also received a merit award in the online category.

South African Breweries's corporate communications head said of this year's awards: "This has been an incredible year for burgeoning talent. It’s encouraging to see that as much as these awards applaud the best environmental journalists in the country, it was also about inspiring new talent. We are delighted that we have such a great collection of young environmental journalists working in South Africa.”

Kings describes himself as "the person the Mail & Guardian sends to places when people’s environment is collapsing".

He says that for Christmas he wants "a global agreement where humanity accepts that sustainable development is the way forward. And maybe for all the vested interest to stop being so extreme. And world peace. And a sturdier pair of shoes."

All King's work, including his award-winning articles, can be viewed on his author page.
