Cheers to those who shared winning smiles

South Africans rallied to make Casual Day 2023 a memorable celebration of inclusion, diversity, and boundless smiles while supporting people with disabilities.

People across the country sent a powerful message in support of Casual Day by entering the 2023 Casual Day Photo Competition, hosted by the National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities, in partnership with Caxton Local Media and Brand SA.

People got to showcase their unique interpretation of this year’s Casual Day theme #ShareASmile by either dressing up or dressing down, enhancing their smiles, or inspiring smiles in others.

Creativity was the name of the game, as people let their happiness shine, and shared their fantastic photos on social media.

The judges looked for images that exuded bubbly positivity, unity, and genuine joy.

Congratulations to the winners of each of the five categories:
