After successfully organising the 2018 edition, the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) has scheduled the 2019 edition of the West Africa Media Excellence Conference and Awards (WAMECA) for October 18-19.
The 2019 edition will be the third since the inaugural Awards in 2017.
The West Africa Media Excellence Conference and Awards is an initiative of the MFWA to promote media excellence in the sub region. The Conference brings together journalists, media experts, editors, academics, freedom of expression advocates and high profile personalities from across West Africa and beyond to deliberate on key challenges to media development and explore ways to support the media to promote good governance, regional integration and peace in West Africa.
The Awards Ceremony, which crowns the event, honours journalists in West Africa who have produced compelling works which are impacting lives positively in society.
