The Thomson Foundation commends Promasidor Nigeria on Quill Awards
Nigel Baker, The Chief Executive of the Thomson Foundation, the globally acclaimed international media development organisation, has commended Promasidor Nigeria on the Quill Awards stressing that any organisation that invests in the media would not only enable journalists to thrive in their work, but will make them relevant in the future. Baker made this declaration during the graduation ceremony of the 2014 quill Awards.
Kunle Falayi, a journalist with Punch Newspaper, was adjudged to be the Overall Winner at the second edition of the Promasidor Quill Awards, which took place on Saturday 24th May 2014. For being the Overall Winner, Kunle Falayi attended a four-week, all expenses paid multimedia journalism training course with the Thomson Foundation in London, followed by a one-week work placement with the Daily Telegraph of UK. Falayi said that Promasidor has written a new and exciting chapter in his life because of the newly acquired skills he gained at the Thomson foundation, which were previously beyond his reach.
Promasidor Nigeria launched the Quill Awards in 2012 as a platform for assessing, recognising and rewarding excellence for outstanding journalistic work based on merit. The positive engagement between the media and Promasidor has made Promasidor's products market leaders in their segments.
