BON Moves The Nigeria Broadcasting Awards To 2023
The Broadcasting Organisations of Nigeria (B0N), organisers of The Nigeria Broadcasting Awards (TBNA) have postponed the awards ceremony to next year due to late entries from broadcasters.
The postponement decision was made during a review meeting between the Steering Committee, the consulting firm, and BON Secretariat.
Speaking on the postponement, Mr. Guy Murray-Bruce, President, of Silverbird Group, said the postponement became necessary because of the number of broadcast professionals hindered from meeting the September 23 deadline for submission of entries by technology and courier companies.
Murray-Bruce also said BON has extended the deadline for the submission of entries into the various award categories to January 15, 2023, as the new deadline for entries.
“We received 471 entries at the expiration of the deadline for submission. But we kept receiving pleas for an extension.
“After considering the reasons given by prospective entrants, who could not meet the original deadline, we resolved to extend the deadline,” the statement said.
