The launch of the Excellence in Journalism Awards Tanzania (EJAT) which was initially set for October 13, 2015 has now been pushed to October 16, 2015.

The changes have been made due to pressing issues that need to be sorted out before the launch, a senior official of the Media Council of Tanzania (MCT) which is the event’s lead partner has said.

According to the official a number of pertinent issues have to be settled and finalized before the launch. The pending matters need more time, before proceeding to the launch.

A meeting of EJAT partners held at the offices of the Media Council of Tanzania on September 29, 2015 - had set October 13, 2015 as the launching date of the seventh edition of EJAT 2015.

The meeting was chaired by Pili Mtambalike, the Regulation and Standards Manager of the Council also resolved to add two more categories to be contested in EJAT.

On the event’s launch partners were of the opinion that it should be elaborate and winners of the past EJAT, and some sponsors should be invited and it should be well covered in the media.

The meeting had also decided to introduce two new categories, after the partners accepted a request from the Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA) and the Public Procurement Regulatory Authority (PPRA) to introduce Reporting category on taxation and revenue collection and a Reporting category on Public Procurement.

Following the decision to include the two categories, the partners resolved to drop the open category making the competition to have 22 categories.

The other categories are Economy and Business reporting, Sports and culture, Environment, Reporting Children, HIV and Aids, Good governance, Reporting gender, Science and Technology, Maternal health, Investigative journalism, Education, Tourism and Conservation, Reporting People with Disabilities, Best Photographer for Print Media, Best Cameramen, Best cartoonist, Reporting Agriculture, Reproductive Health for Youth, and reporting Gas, Petroleum and Mineral exploitation.

During the meeting, the partners also discussed on how to improve the competition to promote to attract more quality entries and its judging process.

The partners also expressed their appreciation for the achievement attained so far in the competition but insisted there was no room for complacency… they resolved to aim for more success.

EJAT is held every year since it started in 2009.

From 2011, apart from awarding journalists for outstanding performance, media practitioners who have made great contribution in advancement of the profession have been awarded the Lifetime Achievement in Journalism Award.
