Supported by the Department of Arts and Culture under Mzansi Golden economy (MGE), the awards are hosted by Carol Bouwers Productions to recognise women who have shown leadership, fostered growth and made efforts to strengthen the arts in South Africa.

The theme for the Mbokodo Awards in 2016 is on celebrating all that is wonderful at this time in our democracy, It is celebrating the triumph of the human spirit!

The 5th anniversary of the Mbokodo Awards concise with the 20th anniversary of a constitution which is progressive towards women’s rights; the year-long 60th Anniversary of the 1956 Women’s March to the Union Buildings to protest against the extension of pass laws to women and the 70th anniversary of UNICEF defending the rights of children.

The occasion is indeed a unique platform that consolidates the incredible work done by South African women through honoring their immense contribution in the fields of arts and culture.
