ISLAMABAD - Adnan Aamir, Editor of Balochistan Voices and a freelance journalist based in Quetta, has won the Reporting on Delimitation Award organized by Center for Excellence in Journalism (CEJ).
Reporting on delimitation became important due to 2018 being the election year in Pakistan. Therefore, CEJ conducted countrywide workshops on reporting delimitations in March this year.
Workshops were held in all major urban centers - Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar, and Quetta amongst others. Senior journalists and election experts traveled to these cities and conducted one-day workshops.
CEJ then announced an award for best reporting on delimitation. The participants from all over Pakistan who had attended the training took part in the competition.
Adnan’s award-winning story titled “Limits of Delimitation” was published in the April issue of Newsline magazine. Henna Saeed was declared the runner-up for her story published on BBC Urdu.
Adnan was also among one of the fellows in the Chevening South Asian Journalism Program at the University of Westminster London, which ended on May 19.
During the fellowship, Adnan wrote an academic research article on exploring revenue generation streams for small-sized digital media organizations.
