AADS Graduate Student Abimbola Adelakun Nominated for Diamond Award

Wed, May 15, 2013

Abimbola Adelakun (AADS MA, 2013) was nominated for "Best Informed Commentary" in the 21st Edition of Diamond Awards for Media Excellence (DAME) in 2012. It is in recognition of her work as a weekly columnist for PUNCH, Nigeria's most widely read newspaper.


The competition reviews works produced by Nigerians that appeared in the Nigerian media during the year of assessment. The judges, in reviewing entries, lay emphasis on the degree and thoroughness of investigation, the relevance of the work to society, the style of presentation and the impact the work had on the society. The awards have, over the years, served as an annual reunion of media professionals, policy regulators, academics and discerning members of the public from industry, the arts and government, and they serve as a useful barometer to measure media performance in Nigeria.


Congratulations to Abimbola for this distinctive nomination!
