Here is wishing hearty congratulations to P. Angelina, reporter for The Star?s In.Tech, for winning the second prize of the Sony Malaysia Media Achievement Award (SOMA). Angelina won the English category prize for the article that she wrote in October last year. This is an excerpt from The Star on the SOMA:
Angelina said she was surprised that she had won an award for her article, Sharing Life?s Recipes Online, about how a paralysed man was using the Internet to live his life.
?I had not expected to win anything since this was the first time I was taking part in the competition. I?m happy to have been selected. It?s always nice to be recognised for one?s work,? she said.
Soma 2004 received 91 entries from newspaper and magazine journalists. The contest aimed to encourage journalists to write news on audio-visual, information and communication technology (ICT) and IT networking in the broadband era.
