Organisers of Ladies in Media Awards (LIMA) have expressed the readiness for a memorable show this year on March 25.

According to the organisers, unlike past events which are most­ly held in conference rooms, this year’s programme would be beamed live on both tradition and social media platforms.

The organisers believe that this will help reach most women in media across the continent.

Speaking to The Spectator, Margaret Barden who is the President and brain behind the initiative said, they would be working directly with credible boards to adjudicate the entire process from the selection to the final day of the event where deserving honorees will be awarded.

She added that the final event will recognise the crème de la crème of outstanding African female personalities in various fields of the media and creative industry in five African coun­tries; Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, and Zimbabwe.

According to her, “LIMA’s vision is to award and recognise media personalities whose work and influence have impacted the media creative space in their respective countries and also encourage upcoming and aspir­ing young women to strive for professionalism.”

The Awarding board for the Ladies In Media Awards include Hon Nadia Ahmed ,Deputy Minister of Information and Communication Technology(ICT) , Innovation and youth affairs , Kenya, Mr. Idorenyen Enang, ,President, National Institute of Marketing of Nigeria (NIMN), Diana Hopeson ,Gospel Artiste, former President of Musicians Union of Ghana, Mr. Tawanda Raymond Entrepreneur – Zim­babwe, and Mr. Maxwell Dodd ,Entrepreneur- Ghana
