(Monrovia, June 14, 2017) The Press Union of Liberia says all is set for the holding of its 2017 Excellence Awards and Dinner Night.
The Union’s latest statement comes after it extended the event to mobilize logistics for the Awards Night.
Each annual awards program is intended to identify and honor the work of journalists and media institutions that perform with distinction during the last period.
Liberian Journalists have for the past months been submitting entries for seventeen individual categories while five ultimate prizes are usually determined through peer review standards.
The Peer Review Standard allows Media Institutions to nominate their institutions and Journalist of the Year for scrutiny by a select group of professionals who make up the PUL Awards Vetting Committee. This year’s awards vetting committee is led by Atty. Ade Wede Kekuleh.
Along with the National Media Council, the PUL Excellence Awards are at the heart of the Union’s self-regulatory regime which encourages journalists to remain ethical at all times in the discharge of their duties.
Press Union of Liberia Annual Awards Night, a co-branding event is being largely funded by USAID through its Liberia Media Development project being managed by Internews. Other providers of prizes are UN Women, UNDP and WHO among others.
The PUL Awards Event will commence at 7pm prompt at the Paynesville City Hall- dress code is formal.
