Gregor or Adriaan or Heath?

Three of South Africa’s most inspiring designers are to be honoured and rewarded for the massive ‘strides’ they have made in life.

The three - manufacturing designer, Gregor Jenkin, lamp designer Adriaan Hugo and Heath Nash who recycles scrap into funky designs – have been nominated as part of Johnnie Walker’s global celebration of 100 years of its Striding Man Icon.

The 15 “Striders” across 5 fields – Design, Entrepreneurship, Environment, The Arts and Leadership - have been chosen for achieving success in their various fields of endeavour despite numerous challenges and will be honoured in the Johnnie Walker® Celebrating Strides Awards 2008/9.

A panel of judges and the public will select the top finalist in each of five categories and the winners will receive prizes worth around R600 000 in total.

Vote for your favourite in the People's Choice category.
