Naira Diary, one of the leading news blogs in Nigeria telling Nigerian stories and amplifying stories told by Nigerians while keeping everyone entertained, informed and educated has unveiled the theme for this year’s Naira Diary Impact Awards – THE HEROES.
Naira Diary also announced Lagos as the host city for NDI Awards 2022.
As a blog, Naira Diary has painstakingly given a voice to the voiceless, promoted businesses and events, and led conversations in areas of national development within Nigeria.
However, with NDI Awards 2022, this news and entertainment blog is looking to take it to the nextlevel.
Explaining the theme, “THE HEROES”, Henshaw Jacobson, the director for Naira Diary Impact Awards said, “ Heroes as a project, was started with the sole aim of appreciating real-life heroes and their ‘heroic’ actions in Nigeria. This project recognizes that there are heroes and that not all of these heroes wear capes.
And so, this award project aims to recognize and celebrate these people, groups, and entities who have contributed to bettering lives and making society better.
Part of the plan is not to only recognize and appreciate, but to also publicize the works of such individuals, organizations, and entities. Nevertheless, this project acknowledges that there is still so much to do in terms of making a society like ours accept and celebrate heroes.
A portion of what the project seeks to achieve is to reinstate the mindset that we need more heroes, and in addition to recognizing and appreciating these heroes, this award would also highlight the works of such individuals, groups, and entities.
The objective behind this is to motivate them to do more, and through them, inspire new crops of impact-driven people across Nigeria”.
On why they picked Lagos as the host city, Henshaw said Lagos is not only their primary location but that Lagos as the host city for NDI Awards 2022 will help them connect with more unrecognized Nigerian heroes as NDI Awards is looking to give special attention to those who have made heroic moves but are not known nor celebrated.
On the nomination and voting, He said The NDI awards would rely on public nomination for its entries. What this means is that the public would be solicited to nominate and subsequently vote for candidates.
The nomination period is expected to last for four weeks, followed by a grand finale that would include both virtual and in-person voting.
In addition, the selection process would involve a jury whose primary responsibility is to properly access the nominated individuals and compile the final list of nominees who would be voted for.
To promote fairness and transparency, this award project intends to thoroughly access all nominated candidates through an assessment timeline of 12 to 14 months.
During this time, the jury will be paying close attention to what these nominees done within the period. In addition, each award category would have its individual eligibility criteria.
