Deadline for nominations for BroadCom award extended with eased requirements

Meeting of the Maldives Broadcasting Commission (Broadcom)

The deadline for nominations for ‘Maldives Broadcasting Awards 2022’ organized by Maldives Broadcasting Commission (BroadCom) has been extended.

In this regard, the deadline has been extended until 2:00pm of next Thursday afternoon.

BroadCom stated that they are extending the deadline after taking note of challenges faced by some broadcasters in applying for the awards due to the requirements set down for some categories.

They further underscored their decision to omit some of the requirements this time around in order to allow the most number of people to apply for the awards; as it is the first time such an award show is being held in the Maldives – whereas some broadcasters are facing financial challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Therewith, BroadCom has omitted the requirement pertaining to non-submission of annual report and nonpayment of annual fee and fines under Section 7 of ‘Regulation on the issuance of Maldives Broadcasting Awards’.

Maldives Broadcasting Awards is based on three categories for which BroadCom has opened nominations for. The details of categories and requirements are stipulated in the ‘Regulation on the issuance of Maldives Broadcasting Awards’ which is available for viewing on BroadCom’s website.
