Considered the leading barometer of what South Africa’s youths and consumers in general find on-trend and inspirational, the annual awards delivers insights that are valued by brand management, advertising, and marketing professionals alike.
The survey conducted by HDI Youth Consultancy (now incorporated into Yellowwood) has previously been limited to South African youths between the ages of 8 and 23.
Now for the first time the awards also includes a sample population of Young Professionals, aged 25 to 30 years.
More than six thousand youth and young professionals across the country were polled during the 2020 survey period which concluded ahead of the national Covid-19 lockdown.
