Association of Professional Photographers Abia State (APPAS) has awarded the Director ABN TV, Mr. Ifeanyi Okali the ONLINE MEDIA EXPERT of the Year 2020 in recognition of his role in promoting ethical online journalism.
Receiving the award on Tuesday in Umuahia, Mr. Okali tasked the professional photographer to protect their image by ensuring they deliver in the job assigned to them.
He expressed dissatisfaction that some photographers receive contracts they are not sufficiently prepared to deliver in but rather seek to execute by proxy as a result of tight engagement, inadequate working tools and manpower.
According to Okali, the third party who may not necessarily be a professional sometimes do not deliver in a timely and acceptable manner which tends to rob off on the rest of photographers.
While urging them to accept the number of jobs they have capacity to deliver at a particular time, the ABN TV boss assured that the platform will continue to give the association the needed support through publicity.
He expressed gratitude to the association for finding him worthy of the honour, assuring that ABN TV will continue to uphold professionalism in the business of information dissemination.
