The Nigeria Broadcasting Awards (TNBA) says it will open for its 2022 entries in August.
The Broadcasting Organisations of Nigeria (BON), promoters of TNBA, confirmed this year’s entries in a statement on Thursday.
Guy Murray-Bruce, chairman of the awards steering committee and president of the Silverbird Group, spoke during an interview on Arise TV.
Murray-Bruce said entries for the awards will open this month and nomination preference will be given to broadcast professionals and stations.
TNBA, slated to hold in November in Abuja, is touted as the country’s first broadcasting award.
It aims at recognizing and rewarding excellence in the broadcast industry. The awards are open to professionals in private and public-owned broadcast platforms.
Murray-Bruce said the award is to ensure credibility.
He said the panel of judges for the awards will comprise stellar industry figures who will infuse the process with the credibility they have earned over the years.
Murray-Bruce also said the award process will be devoid of sponsorship influence.
He stressed that sponsors only have the opportunity of marketing their products and services to the public.
“These awards are going to be the most credible, most authentic, and most viewed by people,” the chairman said.
“These awards are for professionals rewarding professionals in the industry. The judges are credible people, who have nothing to gain financially and a lot to lose in terms of their credibility.”
