Submissions close for Sharjah Govt Comms Award

Sharjah Media Centre (SMC) has closed submissions for the second edition of the Sharjah Government Communication Award. The awards recognise the achievements of outstanding media and communications professionals across government institutions in the UAE. The award incentivises government communication professionals to implement best practices in their daily operations and proactively contribute with ideas for the improvement of their departments that in turn facilitate efficient communication with Sharjah’s residents. The submissions are currently being subjected to a preliminary evaluation process.

“The initial screening of submissions has begun and will conclude at the end of November,” says Asma Al Juwaied, Manager, Sharjah Government Communication Award 2014. “For this edition of the Award, SMC has commissioned a carefully selected team to oversee the quality of entries and ensure they comply to our stringent terms and conditions. In the second phase of the evaluation process, the selection committee will nominate three to five submissions from each category. The shortlisted entries will be presented to the jury panel for the final evaluation and selection of the ultimate winner in each category.”

This year’s Sharjah Government Communications Award has witnessed wide participation from ministries, federal institutions and local government entities, with many of the federal and local authorities submitting entries to more than one category.

The winners will be announced at an official ceremony that will be held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Sharjah, during the first quarter of 2015.
