The African News Innovation Challenge seeks innovative ideas on how journalists gather news, engage with audiences or tell stories. The contest aims to develop the way media operates on the continent, and promotes new digital media products and processes. Winners will receive grants of between $12,500 to $100,000 for projects designed to strengthen and transform African news media.
Proposals may be submitted from anywhere in the world, but entries must have an African media partner who will help develop and test the innovation. Projects that are designed for Africa will stand a better chance of receiving support.
Entries should be submitted online by July 10, 2012.
