Join ROSA for our annual awards ceremony at 8pm on Saturday 24 October in which we will be presenting the 2020 Imbali and Strelitzia Awards. This year's ceremony will be a live online event that is FREE to attend.
The Imbali Award is our annual award for excellence in romance writing awarded to the best published romance novel of the previous year. Awards are given in two categories: English novels and Afrikaans novels. Past English winners include Natasha Anders, Rae Rivers and Suzanne Jefferies, and past Afrikaans winners include Sophia Kapp, Didi Potgieter and Leandra Naude.
The Strelitzia Award is awarded to the best unpublished manuscript that has passed through ROSA's mentorship program. Past participants in the program who have gone on to publish their novels include winners Melissa A. Volker and Amanda Holly, as well as Dorothy Ewels and Andie Patrick.
