KOTA KINABALU: Journalists, photographers and producers from the print, electronic and online media in Sabah and Labuan can now submit entries for the 2021 Kinabalu Press Awards (KPA) starting Aug 1.

The closing date for submission is Aug 31, said Sabah Journalists Association (SJA) president Datuk Muguntan Vanar.

"We are happy to announce that State Government under Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor has reiterated its generous and continued support for the annual event to honour media excellence," he said.

Also on board to sponsor the event are Petronas and Sabah Shell.

"We are very thankful for their support especially during these very challenging times facing the State and the nation."

Due to the Covid-19 situation in 2020, the KPA was put on hold.

The SJA decided this year to go ahead with calling in with submissions for the event that will cover entries from 2019 and 2020.

However, due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation in the State, the committee will decide at a later date whether a gala dinner event would be held or a simple low key event for the prize presentation will be held later this year.

"We encourage print, online and broadcast journalists as well as photographers to join in the competition that honours the best of the best in the media field," he said.

All entries are to be submitted online, and entry forms, as well as rules and regulations, can also be obtained from the SJA organising committee within the submission period.

For any queries, contact the SJA organising committee at 019-8508059 (Aisyah) or 012-3455696 (Ricardo).
