The media play an important role in the economic development of a country through constructive reports on development plans and policies. Only skilled and professional journalists can play such crucial role. Keeping the fact in mind, Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) and BGMEA University of Fashion and Technology (BUFT) jointly announced BGMEA-BUFT Journalism Fellowship-2014for the journalists working in Bangladesh. The objective of the Fellowship is to help journalists to develop their professional skills.
Six journalists working in Bangladeshi print and electronic media were awarded for the BGMEA-BUFT Journalism Fellowship 2014 in six categories: Bangla daily, English daily, TV channel, online news portal,weekly, andregional daily. Under the guidance and supervision of the three Mentors, each fellow prepared in-depth reports on the readymade garment industry of Bangladesh during their 3-month fellowship program.
