Ahram Online Journalist Doaa Abdel-Moneim received on Sunday the Nawal Omar Journalism Award for her data-enhanced feature ‘SDGs vs COVID-19 in developing countries: The acid test’.
The article, published by Ahram Online in December, tackles the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic on daily life and sustainable development goals, especially in developing countries and emerging markets.
The award, organised by Al-Ahram in collaboration with the Egyptian Journalists Syndicate, is held annually in honour of Al-Ahram’s prominent late Journalist Nawal Omar.
Al-Ahram’s Chairman Abdel-Mohsen Salama and Al-Ahram Daily Newspaper’s editor-in-chief Alaa Thabet attended the event, which was held at Al-Ahram’s building.
In a word during the ceremony, Salama said that this contest and awards are considered motivators for journalists in these times.
In February 2020, Al-Ahram Al-Iktisadi and Ahram Online economy journalist Abdel-Moneim also won second place in the Economic Journalism Award for her articles ‘Publishing Industry Fighting for Survival’ and ‘Data Industry Leads International Business’.
