Cameroon: National Communication Council to organize first media excellence award 0

The National Communication Council NCC will this year organize the very first edition of the Media Excellence of Responsible Journalism Awards dubbed excell’ com. In preparation towards the forth coming event, a press briefing was organized today 8th September 2016 in Yaounde under the Chairmanship of NCC’s President Peter Essoka.

During the close to an hour meeting, Mr. Peter Essoka, noted that instead of always meeting to deliberate on the number of media organs and reporters who deserve sanctions for either not  respecting professional  deontology or operating illegally, it was better to initiate such a healthy competition  which is out to help media men and women excel in the profession.

The criterion for selection has been scheduled in the days ahead. The competition which has been slated for 16th to 17th December 2016 in Yaounde will be marked by an exhibition, a sports walk, and an official evening ceremony during which winners will be awarded with distinct prizes. Journalists and media houses eligible for the award are those in the Print Media, Radio, Television and online journalism.
