PREPARATIONS for the Zim Community Awards (ZCN) 2021 edition are underway with event organisers calling for more entries for other categories in the service delivery and human rights sectors as well as social entrepreneurs.

While the awards are receiving awesome support from local and international gospel artistes, event organiser Tariro Masunda pointed out that the awards were also honouring outstanding personalities and organisations that have made a mark in empowering their communities.

“Our community newspaper will also honour organisations and people in the service delivery sector, those who are empowering our communities in the business and human rights sector and the philanthropists who are doing great work during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We also have a big surprise for the day as we streamline our operations as a media house and we would like to thank all our partners for their support,” she said.

While our media house is anchored on Christian values, we will not shut the door for organisations that are doing great work in our communities helping vulnerable people like the Muslim community for instance, Masunda said.

The awards ceremony is expected to take place early January at the upmarket Daisy Farmview Lodge in Harare.

The ZCN digital director called on stakeholders to submit all their entries now as submissions will close on December 15.
