The highly anticipated DStv Content Creator Awards are back for a second year, and this time they are hosting an informative Emerging Content Creator Workshop in Johannesburg. Following the success of last year’s event in Cape Town, the team behind the awards is excited to shine a light on emerging content creators, providing them with invaluable insights and inspiration.
