    What would the criteria for awards be – assuming you place any real value in awards, which today are a dime a dozen (I know; I have several)? There is, as you say, a surfeit of “opinionistas”, but a dearth of quality columnists. Every Tom, Dirk & Thabo has an opinion; 1 in 100 can express it well. Ovine readers read & follow the scribblers they like, so “followers” is merely a popularity contest. In a world where quantity has come to vastly outweigh quality, the number of quality columnists in SA can be counted on the fingers of one hand. Sad, but true.
