How do you choose the 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 around 2 400 nominations. Once nominations close we go through the list thoroughly shortlisting potential candidates. We select candidates for each category. Our team of writers then contact the selected candidates and we write profiles based on these interviews.


Why are deserving people I know not on the list?

We work based on public nominations, for the most part. If you know someone who we should profile in 2018, be sure to nominate him or her when entries open in January next year.
