It just doesn’t come easy for a company to come on board as sponsor at an event and we have never seen event’s organisers come out to award sponsors until last Saturday the 29th of April at St Lawrence University’s Main Hall where the second edition of the Slau Media Challenge took place at an awarding function dubbed Slau Media Awarding dinner.
The dinner saw us Chano8 Digital Magazine emerge winners of the award of Outstanding Sponsor, beating our contenders namely NBS TV, Media Challenge and DTB who had also sponsored the event. The award and certificate were handed over to SMS ONE’s Joanita Asiimire who together with Jerry Ssesanga had represented for Chano8 a subsidiary of SMS ONE Uganda Limited.
On top of bagging the award, Chano8 also got a very big opportunity of explaining more on what we do and the products we have before St Lawrence University’s Deputy Vice Chancellor Mr. Andrew Ssemwanga and the university’s head of mass communication department Mrs Metta Doreen.
The dinner and awarding ceremony that kicked off at 6 PM and went on up to 10 PM and it was also attended by representatives from other Universities like Islamic University In Uganda, Uganda Christian University- Mukono, Kampala International University, Uganda Martyrs University-Nkozi, Muteesa Royal University and Makere University.
