IĠM LAUNCHES 26TH EDITION OF MALTA JOURNALISM AWARDS

The launch of the MJA 2016

The launch of the MJA 2016

The Institute of Maltese Journalists (IĠM) launched the 26th edition of the annual press awards, known as the Malta Journalism Awards, with 16 categories. Apart from the journalist himself/herself, Editors and Heads of News Departments may select and submit entries that they consider to be the best work of any individual journalist/s, irrespective of whether that journalist belongs to the same newsroom or not. Submissions can also be forwarded by organisations, corporations and bodies.

In both cases, consent has to be given by the individual journalist/s concerned by filling the appropriate part on the Official Application Form prior to submission of entry by the Editor, Head of News Department, or organisations/corporations/bodies.

“For the 26th consecutive year, the Institute of Maltese Journalists is organising the Malta Journalism Awards to celebrate journalists’ hard work. In its efforts to broaden the public appreciation in different journalistic areas, the Institute is this year launching a new category in collaboration with KNPD, which is the National Commission for Persons with Disability. The prize will acknowledge the best ethical and positive reporting in the disability sector. While I thank KNPD for its sponsorship, I take the opportunity to thank all of the other sponsors who renew their loyalty to IĠM and to the journalism sector on an annual basis. 2015 was another year during which different media houses produced various journalistic works, contributing to a very good standard. This brings me to urge all members of the media to participate through submission of their work, ensuring that the next edition of the Malta Journalism Awards will be another occasion for rewarding the hard work of journalists, opinionists, photographers and camerapersons,” said IĠM Chairman Karl Wright.
