Special Awards In Pictures

The stage is set and the entire country is on edge for the special edition of Liberia’s premier award program, the Golden Image Award (GIA), which takes place in glamor and pageantry.

The Monrovia City Hall lights up Thursday, July 20, for the National Event which serves as precursor to activities marking the observance of Liberia’s Independence Day, bringing together Liberian and international dignitaries in celebration of their achievements.
Dozens of national and international guests will grace the Event named in honor of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, first democratically elected female Head of State, in recognition of her invaluable contributions to Liberia and Africa.
This year’s event marks the 7th Edition of the GIA since it began in 2010 and officially launched in 2011 to honor those who are impacting their countries, communities and people in many areas of work.
Founder and Innovator of the GIA, Ambassador Juli Endee of the Liberia Crusaders for Peace recently said this year’s edition is special because it gives attention to its Image, President Sirleaf, as this will be the last in her presidency.
The Special Edition will be used to highlight the achievements of the President, who is the image and honoree. “This is the last GIA as Madam Sirleaf being the sitting president. We want to highlight what she has done and we also want to say thank you for what she has done for women in Africa, giving us the platform to speak out and be a part of national developments, to say we are grateful,” Amb. Endee said in recently in an interview that focused on the Award.
International guests some of whom are possible nominees, according to her, have been invited to grace occasion, stressing “some of our recipients might not come but will receive the Awards through their Embassies.”
She said she was motivated to keep the program going because it is important to say thank you to those who deserve recognition, making reference to Madam Sirleaf, whom she calls “African Legend.”
