'Concentra Media' will award an annual prize to a journalist who, in terms of both substance and production, produced an interesting news item which was broadcast or published on a news website.
By awarding this prize, 'Concentra Media' aims to promote healthy competition between the various makers of television news items. Concentra also wishes to stimulate journalists to film and edit their own pieces, so they master the entire production process themselves.
