Get voting for your favourite achievers



One of the most exciting parts of the run-up to the Absa Jewish Achiever Awards, to be held on 22 October 2023, is the public voting, which has just been launched.

It’s a way of ensuring that the community has an opportunity to voice its opinion on the nominees.  The community is most aware of the extent of the work of the nominees and their true worth. So that vote is important.

It’s also fun to participate in the process rather than just watching from the sidelines.

Though the judges’ decisions are final and based on a great deal of information placed before them, they sift through the public votes and use it for guidance.

Though some people get upset by campaigns to push voting for certain nominees, some even offering prizes for the number of votes, the Absa Jewish Achiever team sees it as part of the enjoyment and participation in the run-up to the event.

“We love this interaction and don’t see it as disruptive or destructive,” says Howard Sackstein, the chairperson of the Absa Jewish Achiever Awards and the SA Jewish Report. “To the contrary, we see it as part of the fun. Also, we want the community to know that it doesn’t harm the process of judging.”

What’s important to note is that the nominations listed on the voting website are received from members of the public.

On the site, you’ll be able to see all the nominees in the different categories, their videos in some cases, and we encourage you to vote across all categories and as many times as you want.

The SA Jewish Report and Absa Jewish Achiever Awards teams haven’t notified nominees about their nominations. Should nominees be selected as a finalist or a potential winner, they will be notified or invited for an interview by our judges. At that point, they can decide whether to accept or reject the nomination.
