Galliova Awards

The Galliova Awards (Galli= Latin for chicken, ova = egg) are awarded annually to the best food and health media in South Africa

Aim of the awards

The Galliova Awards (Galli= Latin for chicken, ova = egg) are awarded annually to the best food and health media in South Africa, whether their work is published in print magazines, newspapers or online platforms.

The ultimate goal of the Galliova Awards is to recognise excellence in the overall promotion of food culture, food writing, visual appeal, food styling and the evident support of locally produced poultry products, including both eggs and chicken. The Galliova Health Writers’ award recognises excellence in balanced and evidence-based reporting on health, including nutrition related issues with an inclusion of eggs &/ chicken.

The Galliova Awards are sponsored by the Egg and Broiler Producers of the South African Poultry Association (SAPA). The 2022 Galliova Awards are open to food and health media of South African print and online publications. In order to evolve with the changing media landscape, some of the categories have been revised, criteria and scoring have been altered and prize money adjusted to accommodate additional categories. The time period for eligible published work has also been brought forward in order to encourage quality as opposed to quantity of work submitted.
