The annual white tie gala event is attended by approximately 500 captains of industry, stakeholders from Government and members of the media.

In addition, we are extremely excited to reveal that this year we will be awarding a record seventeen (17) bursaries for tertiary qualifications to deserving students of the AAA School of Advertising at the gala event.”

“The ACA is extremely grateful for the support received for APEX from our key partners, sponsors and contributing companies who together make staging the awards and awarding much needed bursaries possible.
