The closing date for the 13th annual South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTAs 13) call for entries has been extended to the 19th of October 2018 at 17h00.

The SAFTAs committee is aware of the challenges faced by producers in collating all the required documents and the extension is indented to allow more time to all producers who have started the entry process but have not yet completed the submission.

Producers who have not submitted their work are encouraged to submit all eligible projects before the set deadline. All entries must be submitted on the SAFTAs online portal, www.saftasonline.co.za by 17h00 on the 19th of October 2018.

The eligibility period for feature films are all films that have been exhibited publicly, in the Republic of South Africa, to a paying audience for a minimum of 7 consecutive days between 1 January 2018 to 31 December 2018.

All South African television content submitted for consideration must be produced and broadcast, in the Republic of South Africa, between 1 August 2017 and 31 October 2018. Please note that re-runs are not eligible.

Content that falls outside of the above eligibility periods will be disqualified. The SAFTAs operate on a voluntary basis, and producers are required to enter their own work for consideration. If producers do not submit their content, cast and crew as entries, they will not be considered.
