10 August 2018 | Art and Entertainment

Expect the biggest red carpet and nothing short of glitz and glamour at the Simply You Magazine (SYM) Lifestyle and Fashion Awards to be hosted on 1 September at the National Theatre of Namibia. The award show is a brainchild of the lifestyle magazine founded by Helena Ngaifiwa, and is all about commemorating people who have done remarkable things for the local entertainment industry. This year, 18 categories have been announced with 115 nominees, including old and new nominees, topping the list.

The announcement follows after an intense and rigorous selection and judging process by an independent steering committee and judging panel. The voting lines are already open and will close on 29 August. To vote for your favourite nominee in each category, send a text message with the nominee's unique code to 5001. Voting is unlimited and all messages are charged at N$1.
