The secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has announced the Clean Development Mechanism African Radio Contest 2012. The contest aims to spread the word about the benefits of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) in Africa.
Broadcasters and freelancers from Africa are invited to submit a compelling story on the topic: “How can my community/city/country benefit from the CDM?” Radio stories will be judged on originality, technical excellence, clarity of message, thoroughness of investigation, level of professionalism, and presentation skills.
Selected winners will be invited to visit CDM project sites in Africa, and will have an opportunity to learn about the CDM and produce new radio stories and documentaries.
The deadline to submit your stories is August 6, 2012. More information at: http://cdm.unfccc.int/about/multimedia/africanradiocontest/2012/
