How do we choose the M&G 200 Young South Africans?

Every year in January we open up nominations for Young South Africans online on mg.co.za.

This year we received over 1 000 nominations for the publication.

Once nominations close we go through the list, eliminating duplicates and shortlisting potential candidates.

The shortlists are vetted by the M&G’s section heads and we select candidates for each category.

Our team of writers then contact the selected candidates and we write profiles based on these interviews.

If you know someone who we should profile in 2017, be sure to nominate him or her when entries open in January next year.
