Hi All!

This has taken much longer than it should have, but I'm proud to announce the results of the 2016 Industry Survey!

 Overall these organisations have directly created 255 jobs.
 Permanent Jobs increased from 152 positions to a 176 positions a 16% growth.
 The value of these organisations is about R100 million, an 85.6% growth from last year.
 Only 14% of the industry is female (up from last year).
 Only 13% of the industry is not white (up from last year).

    Once again! Really encouraging growth!

    Could someone who is a member post this in the relevant Facebook communities please! (Like African Game Developers and South African Game Developers). I think everyone who is trying to make games in this country should know about our successes and the state we're in.
