UCT graduate Nadia Neophytou has scooped the prestigious Arts Correspondent Award for 2007 at the recent Arts and Culture Trust awards ceremony.

The accolade recognises Neophytou's work as a producer of eTV's 3rd Degree, and art stories she has done for Primedia Broadcasting's four stations, Kfm, Cape Talk, Radio 702 and Highveld Stereo, where she is an arts and entertainment journalist.

Neophytou obtained a BA from UCT in 2002 and began writing about art for The Big Issue magazine in her second year. While at UCT, she was an arts editor for the student publication, Varsity, and music manager at UCT Radio.

To win, Neophytou pipped another UCT graduate, Sean O'Toole, and Edward Tsumele. The ACT Awards recognise individuals, organisations and agencies that have played a supportive role in the development of arts, culture and creativity in South Africa.
