During the year, the Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST), the organizer, received 755 entries in four categories of print newspaper, online newspaper, radio and television. Twenty four outstanding ones from the entries were given awards by the organizing panel.
The contest was first launched in 2012 to honor journalists and press agencies with their outstanding press and media pieces on science and technology. The contest aims to raise public awareness of the role and impacts of science and technology on socio-economic growth as well as in the country’s integration and development.
At the ceremony, the organizing panel also launched the “Science and Technology Press Awards 2017.”
