It’s for the 6th year in a row that May Chidiac Foundation organizes its Annual Media Awards Ceremony and Fundraising Gala dinner. This year, the event took place on Thursday October 12, 2017 at Hall 3, Biel.
The MCF Media Awards Ceremony 2017 gathered prominent Arabs and international figures in journalism and media along with highly distinguished guests from various sectors and industries such as; Brent Sadler Chairman of the Editorial Board of N1-24 hour news channel affiliate to CNN in the Balkan region; Former CNN Correspondent to the Middle East, and Mogens Schmidt Director of the division of Freedom of Expression, Democracy & Peace at UNESCO
Our awardees are exceptional journalists and media practitioners who have inspired drastic changes in these fields and confronted major challenges while assuming their journalistic tasks:
This ceremony is the main fundraising program at MCF; it fosters the sustainability of our foundation. Also, it serves to promote the everlasting notion in our Mission Statement which is “Freedom of Speech” by supporting journalists who have demonstrated a special competence and commitment in defense of freedom and the indispensable pursuit of truth, in recognition of their outstanding performance and valuable work.
