Karachi: Uks Research Centre has invited the entries for the first ever Uks-APNS 2013 media awards exclusively for women journalists in Pakistan. The awards aim to generate better awareness and understanding of the fact that positive media content can and does actually bring about positive change in the public mindsets and behaviour, especially in the realm of women’s development and gender equality.
A team of professional and independent jurors for each category (who are also part of the Media Advisory Group at Uks) will select the winning entries. The criteria will cover accuracy and innovation, clarity of message, technical proficiency, and presentation and above all, gender sensitivity.
The first of its kind in Pakistan, the ‘Women in Media’, awards invite entries from women journalists from all across Pakistan. The awards will be presented in Karachi on March 8, 2013 on the International Women’s Day.
The 1st prize-winner for each category receives a cash prize plus a trophy and certificate, as does the runner-up. Recipients of the lifetime achievement award and the beginner’s award also receive cash prizes, a trophy, and a certificate.
Applications must be submitted by 15th February, 2013.
