The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) in Zambia is inviting applications for the Media Award to Recognize and Reward Journalists in 2022.
The Awards’ goal is to increase public knowledge, understanding, engagement, and ownership of COMESA regional integration programs via reporting.
Development initiatives involving more than one COMESA Member State or a national project with a regional component are also relevant subjects for admission.
Trade, infrastructure (electricity, transportation, ICT), investments, gender, and other issues are all addressed in these programs.
If the article/show isn’t about a COMESA program, it should at the very least indicate the author’s/knowledge producer of COMESA’s programs.
Every year, the Award program honors and rewards journalists who have contributed to regional integration by publishing and broadcasting articles on the topic.
Worth of Award for COMESA Media Award
The victors will get a COMESA Heads of State Summit sponsorship, a monetary reward, a trophy, and a certificate.
