Calling all South Africans to the frontline! It's time to rally together to celebrate our pharmacy heroes who have made our safety their priority during this global pandemic and beyond. In the last year, we’ve seen the unwavering bravery and strength displayed by our healthcare workers and pharmacists during the pandemic.
Join News24 and Adcock Ingram OTC in showing our gratitude and thanking our pharmacy frontline heroes by nominating your local pharmacist, pharmacy assistant, or pharmacy who have gone the extra mile for all their customers.
Nominate your local small pharmacy, retail pharmacy or pharmacist who has shown what it means to be a frontline hero. By nominating your colleague, pharmacist, or yourself you could also stand a chance to win one of eight R5,000 cash prizes!
From your nominations, eight finalists will be chosen and celebrated by their local community.
Two of these featured nominees, one chosen by your votes and one chosen by the Sponsors of Brave panel of judges, will go on to win an exciting opportunity to pursue a passion project of their choice.
A passion project is the opportunity to give back to the community to the value of R25,000. Whether this is painting a school, planting a community garden or supporting a soup kitchen.
We want to know their stories — of heart, kindness, inspiration, impact and hope.
The most inspiring stories will see the winners have an opportunity to pursue a passion project and further enabling them to continue making a difference.

Why Sponsors of Brave
With the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic significant changes to our daily living have been experienced which has resulted in the dampening of the spirit of many South African residents. In light of this, and to work towards restoring belief and hope, it is Adcock Ingram OTC’s ambition to encourage our frontline HealthCare Professionals (HCPs) of South Africa, to continue to make a difference in the world and to recognise many of these individuals for their selfless sacrifice during the surge of the coronavirus infection. The HCP fraternity including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, paramedics, and other allied specialities. This campaign will allow pharmacy healthcare professionals to nominate themselves or be nominated by peers and other South African residents for a life-changing opportunity under the banner of bravery. Eight of these nominees will have the chance to share their story in a featured video and be treated to a ‘gratitude shower’ by members of their community and two lucky winners will get to pursue their ‘passion project’ through the campaign. This campaign is not just about these fearless pharmacists, but a call to action to all South African residents to recognise, celebrate and begin “THANKING THE BRAVE” HCPs in our society by nominating them for this worthy prize.
