Rapport is an Afrikaans-language Sunday newspaper
Founded in 1970 when Die Beeld (then a Sunday newspaper) merged with Dagbreek to become Rapport. (Die Beeld re-emerged in 1974 as a daily newspaper.)
Rapport later became part of the Media24 stable and has long been the second largest Sunday newspaper in South Africa after the Sunday Times.
The arts coverage
Rapport has had a long and respected national role in arts criticism, through supplements like Rapport Boeke (late called Rapport Weekliks), with numerous eminent Afrikaans authors, critics and academics writing for it.
Awards for the arts
The Ra=pport has sponsored a number of awards in the arts over the years, including book awards and what is generally referred to in the media as the Rapport Oscar (or the Rapport Oskar) for film work.
