Communication experts in the production and translating of best farming practice materials for farmers in to local languages in the Savannah regions of Ghana is set to open nominations for the second edition of its Harmattan Awards For Development Journalism.

The awards which cover four categories of Radio, Print, TV and local language (radio) had its first edition in February this year in at Tamale Institute of Local Government.

The translation of local language farming materials has been the idea behind the local language category. This is believed to be currently the most appropriate form of communicating best farming practices to our farmers now.

Contrywise Communication for five years in the Savannah region of Ghana has translated over 20 local language video materials for farmers in the rural communities and screening to over 200 villages across the area with the use of tricycle multimedia vans.

At a press conference here in Wa last Friday, Miss Salome Sapio Wesono who spoke on behalf of the Executive Director of the company called on developmental journalist to file their stories for recognition.

Three categories were open for nominations and only two categories were awarded after entries for the television categories did not meet the required number of stories for entries per individual.

A presentation was however made for journalist on the scoop of evaluations to be used for assessments by the panel of three expert whiles journalist took turns to make enquires on other concerns.

The second edition is expected to see all ultimate winners take home brand new lap top computers, Citation, Plaque and other surprises.
