Kazakhstan Announces Winners of International Journalism Competition

ASTANA – The Journalists Union of Kazakhstan, in collaboration with the Foreign Ministry, announced the winners of the first journalism competition, known as “Kazakhstan in the eyes of the foreign communications media.”

The awards were presented to five journalists: Neil Marks of Guyana received the Americas prize; Belgian reporter Sibylle Greindl was given the Europe prize; Norshazlina Nor’azman of Malaysia, was the winner of the Asia prize; Hussein Ahmad of Qatar was handed the Middle East award and Svetlana Ostrovskaya of Ukraine won the prize for the Commonwealth of Independent States.

Marks reported on the cultural contrasts between Kazakhstan and Guyana through the eyes of a Guyanese soccer player living in the Central Asian country and a Kazakh who worked in the South American nation.

Greindl was honored for her reporting on renewable energy and the Expo 2017, which will deal with that issue.

She rhetorically asked why Kazakhstan, a country rich in petroleum and natural gas, is so interested in renewable energy?

In answering that question, the reporter emphasized the plan of Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev to get 50 percent of the country’s energy from renewable sources by 2050.

Nor’azman was presented with the Asia prize for reporting on life in Astana and Almaty, the “halal” industry, the country’s science sector and national traditions in Kazakhstan.

Ahmad focused his reporting on Kazakhstan’s political and economic development, its role in Central Asia and the prospects of the Eurasian Economic Union.

“Despite its enormous ethnic diversity, Kazakhstan enjoys social and ethnic harmony,” Ahmad wrote, stressing the contribution of President Nazarbayev in consolidating peace and interethnic harmony.

Ostrovskaya won her award for her report entitled “A fairy tale of the steppes” about Kazakhstan’s cultural and spiritual heritage.
