Nominate your top young South Africans for 2020

Every year, the Mail & Guardian profiles interesting young people who have stood out from the pack and who show us what to look forward to in the country’s future. These under-35s are talented and have shown themselves to be leaders. They are the ones to watch.

Do you know (or are you) an exceptional under-35? Complete the form below.

The list has become the country’s most celebrated hallmark of the up-and-coming generation, a who’s who of young people at the top of their field in 11 categories.

A list of this nature is only as good as the research and support behind it, which is why the M&G is once again calling for nominations to be sent in by the public to assist our editorial team, who will then make the final selection.

This is your chance to nominate a candidate.

They need to be people who are making a difference in their field or in their communities or in both.


All nominations will be considered and, should your nomination be successful, the research team will contact your nominee directly.

The closing date for applications is June 8 2020.
