Byo award for Njama

Sunday News (Zimbabwe) - - Supplement - Lim­pret Moyo Sun­day News Re­porter

THIS year’s Na­tional Jour­nal­ism and Me­dia Awards will in­clude a spe­cial cat­e­gory for an Eco­nomic Jus­tice Bu­l­awayo Jour­nal­ist of the Year, specif­i­cally to recog­nise a Bu­l­awayo jour­nal­ist who has ex­celled in cov­er­ing the sec­ond capital’s in­for­mal mar­ket.

The award will be spon­sored by the Bu­l­awayo Ven­dors and Traders’ As­so­ci­a­tion. Zim­babwe Union of Jour­nal­ists sec­re­tary-gen­eral Foster Don­gozi said the award will be one of the new cat­e­gories that have been in­tro­duced this year as more com­pa­nies were re­al­is­ing the need to work to­gether with jour­nal­ists in or­der to sell their agen­das.

“A lot of part­ners re­alised that by work­ing with ZUJ, they can com­mu­ni­cate with their au­di­ences more ef­fec­tively, as well as sell­ing their agenda on var­i­ous is­sues like tak­ing care of the en­vi­ron­ment or fight­ing child mar­riages or gen­der-based vi­o­lence,” he said. In a state­ment, ZUJ said en­tries were now open and the dead­line for sub­mis­sion is Thurs­day. This year there are 25 cat­e­gories where print, tele­vi­sion, on­line and ra­dio jour­nal­ists will com­pete. Sun­day News has over the years pro­vided a num­ber of Njama win­ners and fi­nal­ists.
