COCHABAMBA, June 3, 2018 - The Cochabamba 2018 South
American Games has been a perfect venue to present the AIPS Sports Media
Awards, which will project the work of Sports Journalists around the world.
The games have witnessed a great attendance of journalists
from all over the South American continent and other invited countries of
Central America as well as the Caribbean and AIPS has been encouraging them to submit
Marcelo Olivera from Bolivia, who works mainly as a
football commentator, has told AIPS that having the opportunity to be
recognized worldwide is very important and he has promised to submit his work
for the awards.
AIPS also spoke to Onelfis Meza from Venezuela, who also
showed great interest, especially with the possibility of submitting two
entries. This is because nowadays in her country journalists work in different
media companies so it is an advantage to be able to choose more than one piece
of work from the many coverages she has done during the year.
Another journalist who made a commitment to submit publications
about the performances of athletes from his country is Ecuadorian Luis Angel
Chema. He did not mind the long trip he had to do to get to Cochabamba as he
derived joy from seeing several athletes from his country at the top of the
Luis Angel knows that considering Ecuador's great
achievements in the last year, it will be good to participate in the AIPS
Sports Media Awards.
Edilson Ballesteros is one journalist who is mainly
dedicated to the coverage of the Olympic Games. For him the AIPS Sport Media Awards
will encourage him to meet the expectations of not only journalism in his
country, but in the world. He is also convinced that this initiative by AIPS will
enrich him through the publications of other colleagues from around the world.
Cochabamba 2018 still has many days ahead and more
journalists are expected in the city. The AIPS Sport Media Awards promotion
will continue to encourage and inspire creativity among our colleagues.
