For the first time in the history of the Virgin Active Sport Industry Awards, the public is set to decide the winner of this year’s coveted Best TV Sport Commercial, sponsored by Sports Illustrated, with voting now open ahead of the awards on February 7.
The public will play a vital role in the allocation of one of South African sport’s most prestigious prizes, selecting the winner through an online poll hosted exclusively on SportsIllustrated.co.za.
The winner will be crowned at the star studded Virgin Active Sport Industry Awards ceremony at the magnificent Emperors Palace.
Last year saw the Best TV Sport Commercial Award presented to Absa for its Springbok ‘Team of Millions’ promotion, with Heyneke Meyer and John Mitchell handing over the prize on the night.
In 2013 the award promises to be just as exciting and fiercely contested, with the likes of Absa, Nedbank, SARU, SuperSport and Vodacom in the mix.
