The Mining Media Awards are organised by MEJRKH Communications and Media Advisory in partnership with the Chamber of Mines of Zimbabwe to honour media practitioners who have contributed towards objective and impactful coverage of the mining sector.
Introduced in 2014, the awards aim to encourage coverage of the mining sector in the local media in a manner that has a favourable influence on decision makers, the public and the sector in general.
