In 2019, AL South Africa crowned its second batch of Integrity Icon winners after a successful national campaign to “name and fame” the country’s most honest government officials.
The country office is building out the programme after a strong start in 2018 with votes peaking at 6,000. The team also ran its second film fellowship through which young socially-minded filmmakers produced short films about the Icons and gained valuable hands-on experience in narrative story-telling. Additionally, the team continued to support the work of the 2018 Integrity Icon winners and was happy to see them gain other forms of recognition for their tireless commitment to public service. AL South Africa enters 2020 ready to take the Integrity Icon campaign to even greater heights and extending efforts to work with young people to shift norms. Read the full 2019 Annual Report here.
