PREPARATIONS for the second edition of the Kariba-Hurungwe media awards have reached an advanced stage, the Zimbabwe Union of Journalists (Zuj) Kariba chapter chairperson Admore Mbonda said on Monday.
The awards will recognise journalists who excelled in reporting issues in Kariba and Hurungwe.
Mbonda said Zuj was still mobilising resources for the prize money.
“Preparations for the event are on-going and we are appealing for any form of assistance from corporates and the Kariba-Hurungwe community. This year we want something bigger and better. We are pleased that the community has been supportive of the event since inception in 2021,” Mbonda said.
He urged Hurungwe and Kariba journalists to submit entries for the awards.
“These awards can only be relevant if we all participate. There will be seven categories, which are the best reporter of the year, business reporter of the year, environment and conservation reporter of the year, community development reporter of the year and health reporter of the year among others,” he said.
The awards will be held next month at a date and venue yet to be announced.
They will cover both print and electronic categories.
