Written by darling on December 1, 2022
The Committee on Governor Hope Uzodinma media excellence award has announced winners for different categories in the 2022 edition of the contest.
Among the winners is Cosmos Chukwuemeka of Darling 107.3 FM who emerged best sports reporter with an average score of 58.57%.
Addressing newsmen at the Ministry of Information & Strategy, Owerri, Committee Chairman Fidel Onyeneke says the winners emerged through a competitive, and transparent process.
For the Commissioner for Information & Strategy Declan Emelumba, Governor Hope Uzodinma instituted the media excellence award to encourage excellence in journalism considering the sensitive relationship between media and society.
In August, the government composed a 9-person committee of media experts to receive and screen entries from journalists in both print and electronic media outlets in Imo State for work published between January and September 2022.
While winners emerged in 9 of the 12 categories advertised, entries in two other categories were voided for falling below the committee’s standard, while no entry was received in one other category.
A formal prize giving ceremony is scheduled to take place soon.
