It is clear that Knysna is bursting at the seams with people who are passionately involved in a host of extraordinary endeavours and the annual Sanlam Knysna Awards seeks to highlight this. Through an online voting process, locals have the opportunity to elect businesses, organisations or individuals that have inspired them with their vision, contributions and achievements, thereby recognising the positive impacts that they have had on our beautiful town.

Event organisers were thrilled at this year’s response. Pieter Cloete says: “The phenomenal growth of the Sanlam Knysna Awards goes to show that local people are willing and ready to recognise and applaud individuals and organisations who continue to make Knysna a wonderful place in which to live, work and visit.”

Hats off to each and every one of the nominees, all of whom should stand tall in the knowledge that Knysna values their positive influence on the local community. After much anticipation, those nominees which received the most votes were announced at a gala dinner held at the Simola Hotel on Thursday 4th February.
