Nangoli, a final year student at Makerere University will smile all the way to the bank this festive season.

He received sh500,000 courtesy of The New Vision in recognition of his performance in photojournalism.

The lucky young man also got a plaque, in addition to six-months employment at the corporation.

Nangoli could not hide his excitement as he received the award from the Sunday Vision editor, Joachim Buwembo, at the Makerere Guest House gardens.

He commended The New Vision for coming up with and sustaining the idea of the award.
