Lusaka, Wednesday, February 13, 2019: The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) has extended the submission period for the 2019 COMESA Media Awards entries by one month, from 31 January 2019 to 28 February 2019. The extension will provide more time for journalists to submit their entries.
The award scheme is conducted every year to recognize and reward journalists who have contributed to regional integration by publishing and producing broadcast stories on the subject. Its objective is to promote reporting of COMESA regional integration programmes hence raising public awareness.
The winners for 2019 will be recognized and awarded during the COMESA Heads of Summit later this year.
