Media Challenge EXPO 2017
The Media Challenge Expo will bridge the gap between the journalism students and the job market and help empower a generation of skilled, ethical and analytical journalists who will use their media platforms to transform their society. The Expo will be the first-ever large-scale festival bringing together the Ugandan media fraternity with university journalism students. Students, employers and media industry leaders will engage in discussions on innovations in the Ugandan media, exhibitions and competitions of students’ work, interviews, networking and career guidance with recruiters, and a live news reporting competition with skills-based training as the prize.
