The sixth edition of mock press conference organised by Department of Journalism at Amity School of Communication (AUMP, Noida) gave an oppurtunity to pose questions that can make a difference. The participants got a duration of two minutes where they had to present their topics along with statistics. Audience posed questions. Auditors observed the proceedings and judged the winners.
Serving as a learning experience the participants were provided with an option to choose from the five categories by a chit system. The categories were sports, social issue, law, politics and entertainment, it is in these topics that participants made their presentation.
