General Director of the Chinese Cultural Centre in Cairo and Cultural Counsellor of the Chinese Embassy Shi Yuewen handed out the awards of the first edition of the “I and China” journalism competition at the Chinese Cultural Centre on Saturday.

The competition is organised in cooperation with Radio and Television magazine and China Today magazine. The number of competitors reached 279 people, with 30 winners.

The Chinese cultural counsellor had suggested the idea of the competition after its great success in Algeria.

During the ceremony, Ismail El-Shashtawi, representing the National Media Council, and Liu Yongfeng, deputising for Chinese Ambassador Song Aiqua, presented the first prize – a trip to China -- to Ahmed Zaref Daif and Sabry Nasra.

The head of the Ministry of Culture’s Cultural Development Fund, Fathi Abdel-Wahab, presented the second prize to three winners, worth $2,000, as well as 20 other smaller prizes.
