NMNA announces categories, nominees for 10th anniversary

Jaji, Ericson, Olugbemiro and Adewale at the 10th Nigeria Media Nite-out Award media briefing in Lagos Jaji, Ericson, Olugbemiro and Adewale at the 10th Nigeria Media Nite-out Award media briefing in Lagos Nigeria Media-Nite out Award (NMNA) has unveiled nominees and categories for the 2016 award ceremony, which will hold on September 25, 2016, at Time Square event Centre, Ikeja, Lagos. This was disclosed at a press conference to officially announce the anniversary. Founder of NMNA and chairman of Solkem Entertainment, Mr. Sola Olugbemiro, said the event had been the darling of many media practitioners, as it lends credibility to practitioners who are excelling in their several areas of concentration. He noted, “The NMNA was conceived 10 years ago with a view to carrying media practitioners along as an appreciation of their hitherto unrecognized contribution to the development and emancipation of the Nigerian nation. This, we believe, will further encourage and inspire our media practitioners to better their performances and work ethics”. Managing Director of 24-7 Zinto Marketing Limited, Mr. Segun Adewole, said this year’s award would be exceptional, as it would, for the first time, cover a large spectrum of journalists in the electronic media as well as print. He added that “the media has gone through thick and thin since independence and the least we can do is to continue to recognise the good work of media practitioners”. He also noted that the categories of the award had been extended to 18, adding, “We are having more media partners both in electronic and print coming onboard to ensure that we have a successful anniversary this year. This year’s award will also have a lot of millage for our sponsors who have been with us for the past nine years. We ask you not relent”. Former Executive Director, Ojudu Local Government Area, Mr. Ahmed Moyosore Jaji, urged men of the press to put in their best in discharging their duties, as the fourth estate of the realm contributes a lot to the development of a nation. Raji commended the organisers of the event, saying, “I urge you not to relent on the good work; it is good that you have gone beyond Nigeria to involve a top South African Marketing firm”. Regrettably, he said, the venue of the briefing reminded him of a top journalist, Mr. Dele Giwa, who was killed on the street years ago. The categories for nomination includes Business Writer of the Year, Political Writer of the Year, Photo Journalist of the Year, Sports Writer of the Year, Editor of the Year (soft sell), Entertainment Writer of the Year, Crime Writer of the Year, Brand Writer of the Year, Best Radio Programme of the Year, Best Blog of the Year, On Air Personality of the Year (TV and Radio), Best Television Station of the Year among others.
