We announced two media recognition awards for the media fraternity from Mauritius, Madagascar, and Seychelles, Merck Foundation Media Recognition Awards  “More Than a Mother” 2021 and Merck Foundation “Mask Up With Care” Media Recognition Awards 2021; two awards for the fashion fraternity of these countries, Merck Foundation Fashion Awards “More Than a Mother” 2021 and Merck Foundation “Make Your Own Mask” Fashion Awards 2021; in addition to Merck Foundation Film Awards “More Than a Mother” 2021 and Merck Foundation Song Awards “More Than a Mother” 2021 during the Merck Foundation Health Media Training that was held via zoom particularly for Mauritius, Madagascar ad Seychelles in partnership with Media Trust Board, Mauritius.

 

Not only media but Art, Fashion, Film and Music also have the capacity to raise awareness, which further stimulates emotions and eventually leads to influential actions. We have collaborated with Media Trust Board, Mauritius; Fashion Design Institute, Mauritius; and Mauritius Film Development Corporation to launch our Awards for Media, Fashion and Film fraternities respectively. Additionally, we have similar theme-based awards for Music enthusiasts. The aim of these awards is to emphasize the role of Media and Art in enhancing the public engagements for the understanding of these sensitive topics with the need to change its social perception in our communities.

 

We invite all to apply for these awards at submit@merck-foundation.com. I’m looking forward to valuable inputs from all media, film, fashion, and art fraternity.

 

Kind regards,

Senator Dr. Rasha Kelej

CEO of Merck Foundation

President of Merck Foundation More Than a Mother
