The Media Workers Association of Grenada (MWAG) announces the staging of the 11th annual media awards ceremony on Saturday 10th, December at a venue to be confirmed.
This year’s ceremony will complement the annual Media Week celebrations, carded for November 14th-20th under the theme “Building capacity, maintaining journalistic principles.”
Excitement is growing among media practitioners and stakeholders as preparations for the red-carpet affair that celebrates the work of media practitioners in Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique, progresses.
Two new categories have been added to the slate, “Targeting New Media and Talk Shows”.
MWAG President, Gerard Joseph, believes the additional categories “gives further light into the efforts and dynamism of media workers.”
The media awards this year will once again feature a “People’s Choice Award”, where media houses will be asked to participate in the short listing of its popular personalities.
Also, up for grabs is the prestigious “Anthony Jericho Greenidge” award, where a young and upcoming media worker will be honoured.
The call for entries has now been issued and practitioners have until Friday September 30th, 2022, to submit entries.
Awards will be presented to the winner in each category.
Media workers are advised that to be eligible for the awards, their status must be regularized with MWAG, through the customary annual fee of $60 per member.
More information on the awards will be rolled out in the coming weeks as part of MWAG’s Public Relations plan.
