Eloïne Barry, CEO of African Media Agency (AMA) has been nominated for the New African Woman Forum (NAW Forum) awards. The event is taking place in Dakar, Senegal, on 12 and 13 April.

Eloïne’s nomination in NAW’s media category comes as a recognition for the positive strides she is making in the Pan African Media landscape. AMA which is founded on the core principal of availing opportunities to journalists and helping tell the positive stories of Africa has had a dramatic impact on the continent. AMA has played an important part in changing the perception of the continent by promoting an home-grown narrative.

In partnership with various players both local and international it has provided the much needed content for the continent’s media players. It also provides journalists with networking opportunities that are vital for their career growth.

“This nomination is such an honour and recognition for the hard-working women of the continent, who dedicate their life to make Africa a better place. I strongly believe that a healthy country needs a healthy press that is given the right tools, content and transparency to produce a work that will educate and empower the population. This has been my goal and I am pleased to see the changes that our work as a team has made for thousands of African journalists,” noted Eloine.

AMA provides press release distributions and media relations to the most important NGOs, International Organisations, companies and communications agencies in the world. Since its inception in 2014, AMA has run over 700 campaigns, reaching thousands of African reporters and generated tens of thousands of coverage pieces for their clients.

The awards are an initiative of New African Woman magazine. This will be the second edition of the awards. Chosen in 12 categories, 68 groundbreaking women have made the final list which will now be adjudicated by a special panel of judges, and the winners in each category will be announced on 12 April at a Gala Dinner in Dakar, Senegal.
