The Communications Authority (CA) has launched the 6th edition of the Kuza Awards. The awards seek to recognize and promote excellence in broadcasting in Kenya.
KUZA Awards aims to recognize broadcasters who stand in line with the regulatory requirements that have been set by the Authority with this year’s theme being “Shaping the future of broadcasting towards a creative economy.”
This year the Authority has included a two-day conference where various local and international organizations like Netflix, Meta, and TikTok will hold training for participants and industry players.
“Broadcasting still remains a very powerful tool for influencing and shaping creativity. We invite the public to vote for their favourite TV and Radio broadcaster by sending the word KUZA to 15601 and following the prompts,” said Ezra Chiloba, CA Director General
“You can also vote online via the website provided. Voting is free of charge and is open till 28th May 2023, we look forward to your participation,” added Mr. Chiloba.
In line with the theme, the People’s Choice Award category, based on consumer feedback, will recognize creativity and innovation in embracing new trends and technology.
The Kuza awards process comprises several activities leading up to the awards gala, beginning with the launch, the people’s choice voting process, the selection of winners, and the awards gala.
The authority has been running this initiative since the year 2017.
