Members of the ECA(SA) are invited to submit their best projects for the 9th Annual Presidential Excellence Awards to be held on 18 November 2021.

The theme for this year’s awards ‘The Triumph of the Human Spirit’ pays tribute to the resilience of South African electrical contractors who kept their businesses alive despite the crippling coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic also meant that last year’s awards could not be held – so this year contractors can enter projects undertaken between 1 July 2019 and 31 July 2021. 

This year, the format of the awards evening will be different because of the changed circumstances: 120 guests will attend the actual event, which will be live streamed to a greater audience, including around 4 500 ECA members. The ECA will adhere to all the coronavirus protocols at the 2020/2021 Awards.

To enter

The first step is to request entry forms from Theresa Megalane, who is available to help members who need guidance or assistance with completing their entries.

Simply enter your best projects, undertaken between 1 July 2019 and 31 July 2021, in one or more of the 14 categories, attach high resolution images of the work undertaken and return the forms to Theresa before the closing date on 13 October 2021.
