A meeting of the Excellence in Journalism Awards Tanzania (EJAT) partners has made two pertinent decisions.

The meeting held at the offices of the Media Council of Tanzania which chairing the organizing committee of the event on September 29, 2015 - set October 13, 2015 as the launching date of the seventh edition of EJAT 2015.

The meeting 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 widely covered in the media.

As for the two new categories, the partners had accepted a request from the Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA) to introduce Reporting category on taxation and revenue collection.

The other category follows a request by the Public Procurement Regulatory Authority (PPRA) which seeks to have 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.
