Shortlisted winners of the 2022 pan-African (re)insurance awards announced – In-person awards ceremony returns to Lagos 29th July

The 2022 pan-African (Re)Insurance Awards include almost 20 journalists from 10 African countries, selected from close to 100 submissions from 22 of the continent’s nations to this year’s competition, which is designed to illustrate how insurance can benefit individuals and societies at large.

The entries to the awards programme, now in its 7th year, were evaluated by a jury of insurance industry leaders and prominent members of Africa’s business media.

“The top entries were very competitive, covering topical issues, and combining the industry’s role in building trust, responding to risks and committing to sustained growth, with compelling human interest angles and strong narratives,” comments broadcaster and Head of the Jury, Michael Wilson.

For the first time, the awards welcomed entries in Arabic, which contributed to a rise in submissions by 37%. Winners will be unveiled at the 2022 awards ceremony, which will return to Lagos, Nigeria, on 29th July 2022.

“Winners will not only walk away with cash prizes and a fully paid trip to the awards ceremony in Lagos, Nigeria but with the added benefit of knowing they are playing a vital part in elevating societies and stimulating progress amongst communities across Africa,” Michael concludes.
