The Media Centre was created as a results and presentation centre for The 2004 Presidential Election and The 2005 Wolesi Jirga ((Lower House of National Assembly) and Provincial Council elections. The idea was to have one place the media could gather for election information and results. Press conferences were held throughout the day with pertinent information.
We designed a media kit, which provided background information on the JEMBS and the elections. For each election we installed an exhibition in the entrance of the centre displaying our electoral campaigns, posters, leaflets, banners, photographs and infographics with interesting facts and figures.
The bi-monthly JEMB update provided feature stories, news briefings, profiles and donor funding updates. The newsletter was distributed to staff, donors, partner organizations and the government in print and electronically.
