NagaWorld to sponsor sport awards

Entertainment and gaming-sector leaders NagaWorld, one of the key partners of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia, will for the first time sponsor sports excellence awards for outstanding performances during 2015 by athletes, coaches, sports journalists and photojournalists.

At a joint news conference at the NOCC headquarters yesterday, NagaWorld announced awards amounting to $15,000 in eight different categories.

While the Best Sportsman and Woman of the Year 2015 will get cash awards of $3,000 each, Best Disabled Sportsman and Woman will be rewarded with $1,500 each.

A $2,000 cash prize awaits the Best Coach, while the Most Popular Sports Man and Woman will take home $1,000 each. The Best Sports Article and the Best Sports Photo of 2015 will receive $1,000 each.

A selection panel comprising members from NOCC, NagaWorld and Sabay Digital Corporation will finalise the nominations based on the performances. Members of the public can also vote for their choices through the Sabay website and Facebook.
