Zambia is this year expected to hold its first ever media awards to celebrate excellency in reporting  on climate change issues.

According to a press statement issued by the Interim Climate Change Secretariat (ICCS), the awards will honor reporters who have written and published stories in photography, print feature, print news, radio and television.

"The ICCS is hosting these awards under the theme “Increasing awareness levels of the general public on issues of climate change. Journalists from all across Zambia are invited to submit climate change-focused works," said Chama Nambeya who is the Communication and Administration Manager at the Interim Climate Change Secretariat,

She says the Climate Change Media Awards are aimed at promoting examples of high quality reporting in Zambia that gives prominence to climate change issues and provides accurate, informed and knowledgeable reporting that not only informs but educates and sensitises the nation.

"Entries close at 17:00hrs on Friday 17th April, 2015 so start preparing your entries now!
You can download the entry form here and submit your entries to awards@znccs.org.zm," she stated.

The ICCS is a recommendation postulated by stakeholders during consultations of the
National Climate Change Response Strategy, and an endorsement by two meetings of Permanent Secretaries on June 2, 2011 and January 27, 2012.

The establishment of the Interim Climate Change Secretariat was to facilitate the implementation of climate change activities by bringing together stakeholders like government, private sector, civil society and cooperating partners in achieving the aims and objectives of the National Climate Change Response Strategy and the forthcoming Climate Change Policy
