Over 100 journalists have been picked as nominees for the Excellence in Journalism Awards Tanzania (EJAT) 2013.

The names of the nominees were read out by the Pili Mtambalike on behalf of the chairperson of the EJAT Organising Committee, Kajubi Mukajanga at a press conference held on February 25, 2014 at the offices of the Media Council of Tanzania (MCT).

 The nominees were picked by a nine-member panel of EJAT judges headed by veteran journalist and media trainer Gervas Moshiro.

 Other members of the panel who scrutinized over 900 entries submitted for the competition were Mwanzo Millinga, Pili Mtambalike, Chrysostom Rweyemamu, Ananilea Nkya, Jesse Kwayu, Hassan Mittawi, Pudenciana Temba and Suleiman Kissoky.

The judges sifted and scrutinized the entries for seven days from February 7, 2014. They were sworn in to undertake the arduous task by the President of the Governing Board of MCT, Justice Dr. Robert Kisanga on January 29, 2014.

The hundred plus one journalists picked as nominees for EJAT 2013 will find out who among them are the winners for the coveted awards in the 19 categories of EJAT on March 14, at a Gala Night to be held at Mlimani City Hall in Dar es Salaam.

The number of nominees have increased by 24.6 percent compared to last year where we had 81 nominees only.

Of the total number of 101 nominees, 46 are from print media which is an increase of 5 more nominees as compared to 41 of last year.

The number of TV nominees has also increased from 21 last year to 39 this year while for TV there is a decrease of three nominees.

There has been an increase in the number of female journalists nominated from 11 in the 2012 awards to 18 in the 2013 awards which is an increase of 63.6 per cent.

The Judge President of the East African Court of Justice, Hon. Justice Harold Nsekela, will be the Chief Guest at the Awards Giving Ceremony.

Meanwhile a panel of experts of Life Time Achievement in Journalism award(LAJA) has also submitted names of nominees and the winner will be announced at the same Awards Giving Gala Night.
