Africa24 Media and MoSound Events will host the Mohamed Amin Africa Media Awards (MAAMAs) to celebrate the best of Africa's TV content. The Awards, named after the legendary videographer and photographer, Mo Amin, will be accompanied by a training workshop for journalists from across the continent. Tom Rhodes, East Africa Correspondent for the Committee to Protect Journalists, will speak on a panel addressing the state of press freedom in Kenya. The event is aimed at honing skills and trading the latest ideas on outstanding television production.
"Many of you knew Mo Amin for his competitive spirit when pursuing news stories. But he was a lot more than that. He was about training young Africans in the latest technology and setting them loose with his highest standards in mind," said AFRICA24's Salim Amin. Addressing the press, Kevin Muley, MoSound Events Managing Director emphasised the importance of telling the African story and recognising our own. "MoSound Events and AFRICA24 Media are not only passionate about producing African content but are working tirelessly to develop more platforms for Africans to tell their stories-and honouring them! It is a mandate we have gladly taken upon ourselves that is why we jointly present to you the Mohamed Amin Africa Media Awards," he said.
