The Dhaka Tribune made a strong showing at the Brac Migration Media Awards this year, with three of its journalists winning prizes in three separate categories.

This is the third time that Brac has awarded journalists with the aim of inspiring more objective reporting on migration. The event was organized by the Brac Migration Program at the Brac Centre Inn in Dhaka. Head of the Brac Migration Program and former Brac Migration Media Award winner Shariful Islam Hassan delivered the keynote speech before the award ceremony, while Expatriate Welfare Minister Nurul Islam handed out the awards.
