The organising Committee of the Excellency in Journalism Awards Tanzania (EJAT) has vowed to deal with all challenges in order to improve the 2013 competition.

The pledge was made during deliberations in meeting held on December 20, 2013 at the offices of the Media Council of Tanzania (MCT).

Speakers at the meeting were of the opinion that efforts should be made to better the competition now entering its fourth year.

Among the challenges raised during the meeting was raising the standard of judging.

Apart from the issue of judging, other speakers were of the opinion that it was important that media outlets take EJAT seriously for their own promotion.

Even individual journalists who emerge as winners or nominees in EJAT should be proud, some of the participants in the meeting chaired by the Ethics and Arbitration Manager of MCT, Allan Lawa observed.

They appealed for more journalists of both print and electronic media to submit entries for the competition whose deadline is 5.00 pm January 15, 2014.

The entry forms for competition which has 19 categories are available at the offices of MCT in Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar and at Regional Press Clubs throughout the country. They can also been accessed and downloaded from the Council’s website – www.mct.or.tz or by clicking on the following link EJAT 2013 ENTRY FORM.

In addition, the meeting assigned some of its participants the task of approaching possible sponsors to raise funds to facilitate the competition. A list of over 50 sponsors has been drawn.

The members of the EJAT organising committee are Tanzania Media Fund (TMF), John Hopkins University, Media Institute of Southern Africa – Tanzania chapter (MISA-Tan) Tanzania Media Women Associaton (TAMWA), Tanzania Sports Writers Association (TASWA), Journalists Environment Associaton of Tanzania (JET) Tanzania Editors Forum (TEF), HakiElimu, ANSAF and BEST-AC, Journalists Association against Aids (AJAAT) and the Media Owners Association.
