A time to let the Media shine! CoST Uganda launches the 2nd Infrastructure Transparency Journalism awards process

 

CoST Uganda invites the media in Uganda to its 2nd Infrastructure Transparency Journalists award process!

 

CoST Uganda MSG seeks to recognize outstanding journalists in 2020. It should be noted that the 2020 awards will be given to journalists whose articles actually lead to change or action on the issues raised. Journalists should be keen to develop articles/stories that are issue-based with keen attention on the 3rd Assurance findings and recommendations and lead to change or action by the various line agencies. A lot of pieces are produced in the media and no action taken on them, to strengthen objectivity and build the capacity of the media to advocate for change and impact, the 2020 awards will also focus on using the media to realize the impact in the delivery of public infrastructure projects. Journalists intending to participate in this award process should make reference and or extract issues of investigation from the latest CoST reports, the Survey on Citizens needs and stakeholder perceptions and the 3rd Assurance Report launched on 22nd January 2020 on 13 infrastructure projects.
