World Architecture Community proudly announces that two Country Reporters/Editors have been named as the most active Country Reporters/Editors of November for successfully completing at least three articles in the WAC's Country Editors/Reporters Program.
WAC's voluntary-based Country Editors/Reporters Program was launched in December 2017 to disseminate local architecture, knowledge and local news and to assign new volunteer journalists and writers as the face of their country. The goal of the program is to enrich local context and news, connect local architects to the world of architecture and expand our ability to share exclusive and local news with our global audience.
Reaching a great success in a short period of time, the program is composed of architects, architecture students, academicians, writers, experienced journalists and new journalist candidates from different parts of of the world.
Recently, the WAC has introduced a new component in the program, and starting from October 2020, the WAC has started to announce the most active Country Editors/Reporters of the month. Valid from October 2020, the announced Country Editors/Reporters receive a Certificate of Appreciation.
