Promasidor launches Quill Awards website
Promasidor Nigeria has launched a dedicated website for its Quill Awards which was launched earlier in the year to reward excellence in the media.
The site gives details about the awards, criteria for the awards, how to submit entries for the various awards and, in case of enquiries, how to contact officials of the company for clarifications.
The Promasidor Quill Awards cover five categories: Brand Advocate of the year, Best CSR Report, Most Educative Report, Best Report on Nutrition and the Best Photo Story. These categories have been carefully thought-out to accommodate most journalists in the country.
Unlike other awards, entry is via the Internet so as to avoid difficulties in submitting entries. This will give interested participants equal opportunity to participate in the awards. There also will be no case of lost entries, as each participant will receive an immediate response after submitting his or her entry.
The panel of judges will consist of a representative from Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR), an academic and a veteran journalist. Winners in each category will get an opportunity to do a course at Lagos Business School (LBS), a high-end laptop, a high-end camera for the photojournalist, and all Promasidor products.
These Awards will be an annual event that would add more depth and reward reporting excellence. Winning journalists would be rewarded with befitting prizes and be given the opportunity to add to their knowledge and skills set. The Quill Awards were launched at the Promasidor Media Brand Academy in March 2012.
