Consequently they each received a cash prize of 1 Million Uganda Shillings.
John Isingoma was the runner up in the Business and Finance Category for his story Reeling with the success and challenges of the metal scrap industry in Uganda and Antonio Kisembo was the runner up in the Multimedia Category with his story The Quest for Land Amid Increasing Fake Titles.
