Huisgenoot Tempo Awards changing things up this year

2017-09-21 16:20
 


Cape Town - It’s almost time for one of the biggest events on the local entertainment calendar: Huisgenoot’s annual Tempo Awards.

All the biggest entertainment stars of the past year are nominated, and Huisgenoot’s readers can vote for their favourites in 19 categories. Added to that – for the first time readers will be able to vote in one extra category – Huisgenoot’s entertainer of the year.

"This year the Tempo award winners won’t be announced at one event attended only by a handful of celebs and industry bigwigs; all our readers are invited to experience the adrenaline when the Tempo winners are announced countrywide in October on Huisgenoot.com," she explains. "It’s going to be an exciting video experience and we invite all our readers to be a part of the glitz and glamour when the biggest stars of the past year are announced!"

Exciting prizes are up for grabs for readers who send in their votes. This includes a holiday for two to the Maldives worth R60 000, sponsored by Perfect Destinations, two nights in Sun City’s Cascades hotel worth R9 000 and vouchers from Spree worth R1 000 each. 

But now it’s time vote! Go to huisgenoot.com to vote or get all the names of your favourite celebs in the Huisgenoot issue of 21 September, which will be on shelves from 15 September onwards, and SMS your votes. 

The nominees are:
