The Media and Website Coordination Unit (MWCU) of the University has been adjudged the ‘Most Eminent PR/Corporate Communications Team of the Year’ at the 2019 National Communications Awards gala.
The awards, which seek to honour excellent communications companies, teams and individuals with strong media presence across the country, came off last Saturday at the Export Trade House in Accra.
Other metrics for recognition also included updated website information, one’s engagement with the public on social media and the timely relay of information online.
The UPSA Media and Website team beat off stiff competition from renowned organisations including the GIPC, GCB, Newmont, GCNET, Vivo Energy and others to clinch the ultimate.
The University was also the only educational institution and public sector university that was featured in the entire awards scheme.
Media Assistant of the University, Mr Emmanuel Freeman Kwade, who received the award on behalf of the institution expressed the Unit’s gratitude to the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Abednego Feehi Okoe Amartey, who through his vision and leadership created the Unit some two years ago.
The Digital Content and Social Media Manager also thanked the organisers of the awards event for the recognition and reiterated the Media Unit’s commitment to promoting the brand presence and maintaining the image of the University.
The team further dedicated the award to the staff and students of the University as well as their loyal followers on social media.
