Brac Migration Media Award 2016 goes to 10 journos
An award ceremony was arranged by Brac at its Dhaka headquarters on Wednesday, where ten journalists were awarded in five categories for their contribution to the country’s migration sector. Speakers at the ceremony addressed the issue of miserable migrant workers. “The government cannot act alone, NGOs, human right agencies and the media also have to actively address this issue.” Migrant workers need to be treated with dignity, added the speakers. Noted journalist, columnist, research scholar, essayist, and writer Syed Abul Maksud said: “Recruiting agencies, embassies, human rights organisations and womens organisations need to work together for the welfare of migrants. The media is bringing these stories to light, the government must act before untoward incidents occur.” “Without a comprehensive approach, the misery of the migrants will never end,” Abul added. The chief guest at the programme, Jabed Ahmed, additional secretary at Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment Ministry said: “The media is writing, and it serves to pressure us to act more, however, we need more pressure.” “I want the media to criticise us in the government so that we can correct our mistakes.” This is the second time Brac has awarded journalists to inspire more objective-reporting over migration. Adil Sakhawat, a journalist from The Dhaka Tribune won in the National level Print category for his story “Where women are the breadwinners.” The Daily Star’s Belal Hossain Biplob and Samakal’s Abu Jar Ansar Uddin Ahmed won awards in the Print category. In the e-Media category, Mashrek Rahat from Maasranga Television, Sabina Yesmin from ATN News and Miraj Hossain Gazi from Bangla Vision won. Prothom Alo’s Shariful Hasan won in the Online category. Other winners include Hassan Ahamed Chowdhury Kiron, from ATN Bangla, Mustafizur Rahman of Bangladesh Betar and Faruque Ahmad of The Daily Ittefaq.
