To address the continuing problem of alcohol abuse affecting the lives of thousands of South Africans each day, brandhouse is recognising journalists who use their influence to make a difference through educating and informing the public.

These issues include, but are not limited to drunk driving, underage drinking, foetal alcohol syndrome, binge drinking and alcohol-related violence.
"brandhouse is deeply committed to responsible drinking and support various interventions driving this important message. The brandhouse Responsible Drinking Media Awards form part of our ongoing efforts to inform and raise consumer awareness about the potentially devastating effects of alcohol abuse."

  " The media have an important role to inform and influence people and this award represents an innovative way to make Responsible Drinking a priority on the news agenda. We believe their messages influence consumers and by being activists for responsible drinking they have the opportunity to make a difference."
