This year’s journalism awards in Rabat were poorly attended, and no photo was judged worthy of a prize.
Rabat – Several Moroccan journalists received awards for their hard work and contributions in journalism at a ceremony in Rabat on Thursday.
The press prize for the “TV Survey” category went to Youssef Zouitni, a journalist for the 2M television channel, for his program “Minors wandering,” a program on Moroccan minors in the streets of Paris.
Amine Lamrani of SNRT won the radio award for his program “Rizk min Hajjar.”
The written press prize went to journalists Mohamed Aheddad at Al Massae and Mohamed Karim Boukhssass at Al Ayyam.
M’hamed Khyi of Telquel and Jamila Outeznit of the aldar.ma website received the electronic press prize.
The prize for the press agency went to Mourad Khenchouli and Samia Arkoubi, from Maghreb Arab Press (MAP). The award of “Amazigh and Hassania Journalistic Production” was given to Ghalia Jouahri and Ghizlane Issam.
However, the jury did not award any prize for the best journalistic photo, as no contribution was judged to be worthy.
The president of the jury, Seddik Maaninou, gave a speech during the prize award ceremony pointing out the low number of contributions and the decline in participation this year. There was 68 candidates this year, 42 men and 26 women.
