About The Voice of the Cape:

According to the broadcasting authority, VOC is an interest-defined community broadcaster licensed to serve the cultural interest of the Muslim community. The station’s mandate is to inform and educate the community about Islam, with an inherent focus on religious teachings.

Another focus of VOC’s programming is to report matters of cultural, political, social and economic significance.

The idea of a Muslim radio station was born in the early 1990’s by such people as Imam Noor Davids and Imam Gasan Solomon (then Secretary General of the Muslim Judicial Council), for the purpose of community advancement.

The Voice of the Cape became the first Muslim radio station in South Africa when a special events license was granted to the station in Ramadan/January 1995.

Requirements in design:

  • The design must reflect the station’s vision and mission.
  • The design should have the name (The Voice of the Cape) and the 91.3FM frequency of the station included (with the option of adding the 95.8FM frequency as an addition to the more pronounced 91.3FM frequency).

  1. Asalamu Alaykum. Is the prize a cash prize or a bursary towards studying? For example, if someone does not intend to study further wishes to enter, will they still get a prize of R10 000? Shukran

    1. Wslm, it’s a cash bursary and as such isn’t transferable as a cash prize. Winners are therefore welcome to transfer the cash bursary to anyone else they would like to assist in furthering their studies if they do not wish to study themselves.

  2. Aslm, for the design does it have to be printed, via using the computer ? Or could it just be visual… As in sketched
