NAIROBI, Kenya, May 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
May 3rd every year is a day set aside worldwide to appreciate the need for freedom of the press.
"Let Journalism Thrive!" is the main theme for this year while focusing on "Towards Better Reporting, Gender Equality, and Safety in the Digital Age".
Towards better reporting is a major fundamental that Africa24 Media is keen on. It is for this reason that we have created a forum for appreciating journalism work.
Through the Mohamed Amin Africa Media Awards; MAAMAs we will be able to honour outstanding pressmen and women. This is not just about the awards, there will be seminars for the participants to help them connect with each other, learn how to sharpen their skills and engage media personalities on issues that affect our industry. A symposium on Press Freedom, Responsibility and Safety will be held on the last day of the event.
Named after our company's founder, who 50 years ago embarked on a career that produced some of the most indelible TV images of Africa ever seen, AFRICA24 honors his commitment to quality production values and telling Africa's positive stories. From motivating the world to care about starving people in Ethiopia, to celebrating the continent's beauty in his exquisitely photographed books, Mo Amin was Africa's media champion.
The MAAMAs will take place in Nairobi May 20-22nd 2015. Crowning the event will be excursions to some of the special sights that make Nairobi a top international travel destination and a gala dinner on the 22nd. IT ALL AWAITS YOU AT THE MAAMAs! http://www.moaminama.com
On this press freedom day, we salute all press people and voice our encouragement to initiatives in favour of letting journalism thrive and scale new heights, especially in this digital age.
