Congratulations to Shelley Nicole, the winner of the #OnlinePresenterSearch for 2013. We sifted through over 650 entries, narrowed them down to our top 20, our top 4 and then our winner! Shelley is the proud winner of an incredible Samsung smartphone and an ATIV TAB 5, in addition to the Samsung GALAXY S4 Zoom which each of our top 4 received on the beautiful Reunion Island. She will also be the online presenter for e.tv for 3 months and will definitely continue to grow her presence in the South African media from there. All four finalists are also receiving vouchers from Sunglass Hut.
Well done to Anton, Liz and Tevin. They had the chance to travel with South African media icons Jo-Ann Strauss, Pabi Moloi and Lira to the incredible Reunion Island from in September 2013. Everyone was treated to an awesome experience courtesy of Reunion Tourism, LUX* Reunion, Samsung and Jo-Ann Strauss Productions. They went on helicopter flips over an active volcano, river-rafted in some of the most pristine rivers and hiked through the spectacular vegetation of the island of Reunion.
I know that all 4 our finalists are immensely talented individuals and look forward to helping them on their journeys in media as much as possible. Thank you to all of you for being part of this incredible journey! All videos of the #OnlinePresenterSearch journey can be viewed on this site.
