KUALA LUMPUR, May 11 (Bernama) – After two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, the inter media bowling championship organised by the National Press Club (NPC) and QI Group Malaysia is back in action and will resume this Saturday (May 14).
NPC president Datuk Ahiruddin Attan in a press conference here today said it was exciting to have this comeback event after two years of ‘hibernation’, with the purpose of gathering the journalists in the country.
“I am really hoping that we are able to organise more events in the future, such as the treasure hunt and football tournament. We appreciate the sponsors and the sponsorships are utilised for the welfare of the journalists,” he said, adding that the event was aimed at promoting good journalism and to have as much fun as possible.
A total of 10 teams will take part in the competition, comprising media staff from Petra News, Media Prima’s TV3, Bernama, TwentyTwo13, New Straits Times Press, NPC, Sabah Journalists Association (SJA), Asia News, and Penang Press Club, while eight teams from sponsors and special invitation will also join the bowling tournament at the Sunway Pyramid shopping centre.
The top three teams will stand a chance to win cash prizes of RM1,200, RM800 and RM400, including trophies and hampers.
The champions will also be awarded the QI Challenge Trophy and take-away replica trophy, while the top two teams will represent NPC at the media games against SJA in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah in July.
