The Broadcasting Organization of Nigeria, BON has moved “The Nigerian Broadcasting Awards” TNBA which was scheduled to hold in October this year to next year to allow for more entries for the award.

According to the Executive Secretary, Broadcasting Organization of Nigeria, BON, Dr. Yemisi Bamgbose, the postponement was due to the inability of broadcasters to meet up with the deadline for the submission of entries which was September 23, 2022.

The BON representative who added that the entries were hindered by either by technology and courier companies disclosed that the event scheduled to hold in next year is still opened for sponsorship.

“The reason is that many of our members complained that they could not send in their entries, maybe due to network issues or courier services issues didn’t get through before the deadline and we also had intention of getting more sponsors”.

The deadline for the submission of entries into the various award categories has been moved to January 15, 2023.

The TNBA award is open to broadcasting professionals practicing in Nigeria and broadcasting organizations licensed by the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) to practice in the country.
Organizers of the Awards had invited entries from broadcast professionals for works done from August 1, 2021 to August 31, 2022 for the maiden edition of awards.

TNBA aims to motivate professionals to deliver higher professional standards by providing incentives that ignite and reward creativity, original ideas and concepts across broadcast platforms (Radio and Television) licensed to operate in Nigeria.
