TTPBA HOSTS ITS ANNUAL MEDIA EXCELLENCE AWARDS 2018

TTPBA, in collaboration with Huawei will host one of the media industry’s most prestigious and long standing awards ceremonies on Thursday 6th December 2018 at Jaffa at the Oval.  This event allows the Association to pay tribute to pioneers in the media industry who have contributed significantly to its growth, development and sustainability.

This year, a new award is being introduced: The Community Excellence Award, which will showcase the contribution of a non-profit entity for its pioneering social work towards creating positivity within our national community.  This initiative was spurred by the TTPBA’s involvement in the SafeCommuniTT project which was conceptualized by the US Embassy in Trinidad & Tobago.  “It is very encouraging to see the quality and quantity of work being done by several of our nations non-profits.  Their contribution very often goes unnoticed but tells the stories of resilience, commitment to community and belief in each other and our country.  The TTPBA is very proud to recognize such organisations and to let them know that their role is appreciated” says, TTPBA President, Ms. Kiran Maharaj. 

TTPBA TO HOST HUMAN INTEREST JOURNALISM WORKSHOP

TTPBA, with the support of the US Embassy in Trinidad & Tobago, will be hosting a one-day workshop titled “Telling the Human Interest Story”. 

This is being done in an effort to improve feature story-writing for all media platforms and will focus on story ideas, development and interviewing techniques.  The limited-seating one-day event takes place on Thursday 29th November, 2018.  TTPBA President, Ms. Kiran Maharaj, said she hopes that this opportunity will create a better vision for finding angles for the human interest story.
