MBM – MSc in Business Management current student Emilia Christofi wins a prize for her article “A sock, a shirt and a tattered belt, relics of those unearthed as CMP races against time” which was published on 18/02/2017. Prize awarded by the Cyprus News Agency.
Ms Emilia Christofi told us about the award:
“For the last seven years, the Cyprus News Agency has been awarding local journalists for their work. In June, I was presented with best article from the Cyprus News Agency for my feature story “A sock, a shirt and a tattered belt, relics of those unearthed as CMP races against time”.
The article was written in 2017, on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the programme of excavation and exhumation across the island to recover the remains of Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots who have been missing since the inter-communal fighting of 1963 to 1964 and the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974. The grim task has been undertaken by the Committee on Missing Persons.
I shared the prize with another colleague and donated the money (250) to the CMP. The award was presented by the President of the Republic, Mr. Nicos Anastasiades and the chairman of CNA board, Mr. Iosif Iosif at an event at the Presidential Palace. It’s the fourth time that I have received an award for best article.”
