Hundreds send in nominations for GhanaWeb Excellence Awards

A month after nominations for the GhanaWeb Excellence Awards were opened, organisers of the people’s choice awards scheme received close to three hundred nominations for various categories.

A board will look at all these nominations and choose the best 5 for each category. This is definitely going to be an awesome awards event,” Ekow Blankson, Commercial Manager of Advertiser & Publisher Solutions (ADPU) Ghana Ltd, Managers of AfricaWeb’s subsidiaries said.
