Judges Matter

Judges Matter is a civil society group that monitors the judicial appointments process in South Africa. They track and illustrate the process by providing information about the JSC interviews and the candidates being interviewed by the JSC as well as the appointments that are made.

Judges Matter wanted to bring more attention to the process for judicial appointments in South Africa and better engage with and expand their audience.

We designed and developed a brand-new website to act as a home for all content generated by Judges Matter, including the development of an opinions blog to share even more insight into the judiciary. Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are also utilised and are key to the content objective of reaching a wider audience and encouraging awareness.

During the JSC interviews, which take place in April and October each year, huge awareness is generated by live tweeting at the proceedings, a video live stream of the event and loading details of the candidates onto the website.
