The Kinabalu Shell Press Award is an annual event of joy to all media fraternities and practitioners in Sabah.

During that night, awards are given to outstanding newsmen and newswomen as well as photographers for all their works in the previous years.

The Kinabalu Shell Press Award is a joint collaboration between Sabah Journalists Association, Sabah state government, Shell and Malaysian Press Institute.

It was first held about 18 years ago.

So on the night of 9th July 2010, it was the 18th Kinabalu Shell Press Award.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman, the guest of honour, gave away the prizes and awards to the winners.

A total of 184 entries were received.

As usual, the newspaper who came out top in Sabah is the Daily Express, bagging many prizes and awards including the main one - the coveted Journalism Award. Infact the Daily Express is the undisputed winner in the English Language print media Categories for the past 18 years.

For the top Journalism Award - English, the Daily Express teams of either Specialist Writers - Mary Chin and Kan Yaw Chong and Chief Editor - James Sarda won the award countless times since 1992..!!!

They are followed closely behind by The New Straits Times and The Borneo Post for the English Language print media Categories.

As usual also, Berita Harian came out top in the Malay Language print media categories - the national newspaper 2 heavyweight journalists - Hassan Omar and Azrone Sarabatin took turns receiving their respective top prizes. For the past 3 or 4 years, the duel in these categories were always between Hassan and Azrone - leaving very little prizes left for the other nominees from other newspapers. This time Hassan came out top winning a total of RM7,000 in cash prizes while Azrone won RM5,000. Hassan set the Sabah record of winning RM9,000 in cash prizes in previous Kinabalu Shell Press Awards.

As for the Broadcasting category, the past winners were always the Sabah TV3 crews, but for this year, TV3 did not submit entries but would instead concentrate for next year's award.

After the presentation of awards... it was party time till dawn!!!

The entertainers including RIMBA and Adira of Akademi Fantasia musim ke 8, were marvellous except for one hiccup - the two unknown guys who tried their best to entertain the crowd as comedians, but failed miserably. Stale and not funny at all jokes turned them into Bozo the clown instead of the best jokers in town.

Perhaps SJA can take steps to prevent this from happenings again. We used to have top class entertainers such as Stacy, Dayang Nurfaizah and Harith Iskandar, enlighting things up in previous press nights..

Malaysia have plenty of top class entertainers, so why picked that 2 amateurish and completely unknown so called comedians who are still learning the trick of the trade, as one of the entertainers for the night?? Sorry to say but based on their disastrous performance that night, they were obvioulsy not ready for shows of that proportion...
