Journalism in pandemic award 2020

KosovaLive in cooperation with Albany Associates, is launching the Call for Applications and nominations for the Journalism in pandemic award 2020.

The award will honour the work of three Kosovo journalists, video-journalists, bloggers and/or podcasters, who have demonstrated excellence in reporting and storytelling during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bursting the bubble of information noise in the internet to grasp the attention of audiences, while remaining rooted in professional journalism, has become one of the most daunting tasks of any journalist in this era.

Between quality and price of meat, Kosovar citizens choose the latter and later they complain…

We find some suspicious prices at markets. Take a look at the products that markets offer. At most markets, meat products are covered in ice and that says a lot about their quality and expiration. Some have started to turn blue. Look if the fridges are working properly, under neon lights meat looks fresher than in reality. Some chicken legs have excess bones that should be removed according to standards,” he says.
