The list of nominees for the sixth edition of the Excellence in Journalism Award Tanzania (EJAT) 2014 is out.

Fifty three journalists stand out as finalists for the awards on the EJAT Gala night on April 24, 2015

The Vice President, Dr. Mohammed Gharib Bilal will grace the event.

However this number of finalists has dropped by almost half from 101 of 2013.

EJAT lead judge this time around, Chrysostom Rweyemamu explained during a press conference in which the nominees were made public, that the team of judges was thoroughly strict guided by professional and EJAT benchmarks in sorting out the nominees.

The nominees were announced by the chairperson of the EJAT organizing Committee Kajubi Mukajanga who is also the Executive secretary of the Media Council of Tanzania (MCT) - the competitions lead partner.

This number of nominees is a decrease of 47 percent of nominees compared to last year.

Of the total number of 53 nominees, 34 nominees are from the print media which is a decrease of 12 nominees from the 46 nominees in the 2013 awards. The number of nominees from radio is 17, which also has gone down by 22 nominees from 39 of last year.

TV nominees have dropped down drastically to two nominees from 16 nominees last year.

While last year the number of female journalists nominated to the Awards increased from 11 to 18, this year the number has gone down to 11 nominees which is a decrease of 38.8 percent.
