EMFA Awards announced

The Electronic Media Forum Assam has announced three yearly awards to encourage the journalists, associated with the news channels, for their continued endeavour to reveal the truth through visual journalism. The three awards include best story of the year, best story on development issues and best story on environment issues of the region.

The decision was finalised in a meeting of EMFA held in Guwahati Press Club on Sunday (December 19, 2010). The awards will be delivered during a function in Guwahati scheduled in the first half of January, 2010.

The forum has also decided to pursue with the government and respective managements of the channels for ensuring both physical security and professional security. It argues that journalists associated with the news channels are more exposed and hence they are more vulnerable for attacks from different anti-social elements.

Meanwhile, the meeting has unanimously formed an executive committee, where three representatives from each channel and one from national channels would function as Executive Members, with Nava Thakuria (NewsTime Assam) as President, Bimal Ghosh (RD, NewsX) as Secretary and Bhaskar Jyoti Bhuyan (NewsLive) as the Treasurer.
