Sondeka Awards 2018

The Sondeka Awards Ceremony, a brainchild of Creatives Garage, is taking place on March 28th, 2018 at the Loius Leakey Auditorium. The Awards are Creatives Garage way of giving back to the creative community that they have spent more than 4 years advocating for and supporting.

The Sondeka Awards is an avenue for Creatives Garage to appreciate and support the growth of the underdog creative and recognize these highly talented members of the creative community.

This year’s theme is African Heritage and the shortlisted creatives are doing an excellent job of showcasing the Kenyan and African Heritage. I am glad that a couple of my faves were shortlisted, Omenerds podcast, Ayrosh, Maia Von Lekow and Mark Maish. Make sure to vote for them.

Voting closes on March 24th, 2018. To vote for your favourite creatives, visit this link.
