John Eremu, the Features Editor, noted that this is one of the best ways to reward the best persons in society.

He revealed that the competition will be a chance for Ugandans to celebrate the personalities who have made invaluable contributions to our society over the past year.
"We have many big names, but we would like to involve our audience to further confirm their popularity," Eremu said.
