This is the highest national award conferred in Australia on multicultural broadcasters. The award is given by National Ethnic and Multicultural Broadcasters' Council (NEMBC) under five categories. A Nepalese-run radio programme from Melbourne was one of the finalists for Women's Program of the Year.

Yuba Sansar was awarded for its clarity, focus and appeal to the Bhutanese youth community, and showing creativity in presenting their topics combined with their natural and comfortable rapport and confident broadcasting skills.

Yuba Sansar is dedicated to engaging with the Bhutanese youth community on everyday issues. It consists of diverse content such as Nepali music, Bhutanese youth news, tips on how young people can watch out for fraudulent emails and phone calls and inspirational stories.

Other contents of the program include news related to young people from around the world, inspirational story of world famous people, featuring young talents, stories of old people from Bhutanese community when they were young, multicultural events information in and around Adelaide aiming to help young people make friendship with other communities and learn other cultures and career advice.

The programme which started in February this year is currently funded by Multicultural Youth South Australia (MYSA). A group of seven young Bhutanese run the programme every Sunday. nepalnews.com
