Nominations for 2012 Anthony N Sagba Caribbean Awards now open

The nominations for the 2012 Anthony N Sabga Caribbean Awards for Excellence officially opened on June 1, and will officially close on August 31, 2011.This is the second year of our yearly cycle and the transition has been seamless. The committees and Panel have adjusted and all deadlines were met with ease. Again this year the call for nominations is open, and not dependent upon the committees’ resources. We have, however, realized the need to increase visibility and media awareness of our presence in the region and further.The 2011 call for nominations was augmented by print advertising throughout the English- speaking Caribbean, and direct contact with a number of professional and academic institutions, primarily the University of the West Indies. Most territories registered no increases in the number of nominations, with the exception of Trinidad & Tobago, where the number of nominations saw amarginal increase. We have deduced that this is because of the high exposure the Awards acquired via our public lectures, and our media coverage.Following from this, we have changed our strategy in the 2012 cycle. Rather than rely on only print and mail contact, we have been able to have the Awards profiled in a regional television programme, Caribbean Passport, which aired on television stations throughout the region in June and July.A profile of the Caribbean Awards will be featured as part of Caribbean Airlines inflight presentation in July-August. We hope these strategies will bear the fruit of further exposure of the Awards, since all the good work we do will be for naught if is remains unseen and unrecognized.We urge all our subscribers to be sensitive to opportunities for such exposure.The Anthony N.
