Cultural Affairs Awards


The Western Cape Cultural Affairs Awards are hosted annually by the Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport (DCAS) to recognise and celebrate the cultural, linguistic and heritage excellence in the province. The occasion is a vital opportunity to proudly showcase the diversity of the province’s cultural landscape. 

Since 1999 these prestigious awards have acknowledged many individuals and organisations that have made a significant impact in the Western Cape. 

Read more about the previous winners and find more information about the previous ceremonies that celebrated those who made a difference in the lives of so many in the Western Cape.

The annual ceremony is a highlight on the calendar of DCAS and equips the people of the Western Cape with a sense of pride in their cultural and linguistic heritage. The Western Cape Cultural Affairs Awards became a true reflection of the values of our vibrant democracy in which the cultural and linguistic rights of all people are recognised.
