Costa journalists pick up annual communicator award
Fuengirola. The work of two Costa journalists was rewarded last week by the Costa Press Club with the Communicator 2015 award, re-branded for this edition of the annual prize as the Jack Nusbaum Memorial Communicator award as a tribute to the original promoter of the award and founder member of the club, who passed away in February last year.
Joanna Styles was presented with the award for her Guide to Malaga travel app (www.guidetomalaga.com) while Marianne Elizabeth won for her website East of Malaga (www.eastofmalaga.net).
The presentation of the awards, which recognise excellence in journalism, took place during the May meeting of the Costa Press Club and was celebrated at the popular Vegetalia restaurant in Fuengirola. The president, Jesper Sander Pedersen, congratulating the winners of the 2015 award, told those present that the nomination process for 2016 will be announced towards the end of the year. The award is open to all professionals with strong links to the Costa del Sol.
The Costa Press Club is an independent association for foreign media professionals. The association holds regular dinner meetings with guest speakers, as well as debates on topical issues related to the media and Spanish society in general.surinenglish
