“I appreciate the fact that all entries came up with different concepts which showed how creative they all were and the efforts they put in to stand out.I am impressed to see the animation and pencil art concepts, although I had a little issue with some of their deliveries in terms of language (diction) and message as some were not very original.Generally I want to specially applaud all contestants for this great effort they put in to achieve their respective results. It proves seriousness and the fact that they understood the theme Media Literacy” Ndamo Damaris
