Journalists who report on water and sanitation issues in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, or Zambia are invited to apply to the impactAFRICA initiative, which will send three journalists on a study trip to the United States. The selected journalists will tour top media outlets for 10 days.

Access to clean and safe water is a significant health and development concern, and impactAFRICA is interested in showcasing journalism that explores water challenges and pragmatic solutions.

The impactAFRICA initiative is a joint project of the International Center for Journalists and Code for Africa.

Applicants must submit a report on water or sanitation issues published or broadcast in one of the six target countries between March 30 and June 30, 2016. Winners will be chosen in three categories: best community impact, best audience engagement, and best use of data.

The application deadline is June 30, 2016.

This is the second of four competitions run by impactAFRICA, so stay tuned for more information!
