impactAFRICA launches data-driven storytelling contest
Journalists who report on water and sanitation issues in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania or Zambia can win a study trip to major newsrooms in the United States.
The impactAFRICA initiative from the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) and Code for Africa will select three journalists to spend 10 days visiting and learning from some of the world’s top media outlets.
Candidates must submit a reportage on water or sanitation issues published or broadcast in the target countries from March 30 to June 30, 2016.
The categories are: best community impact; best audience engagement; and best use of data.
The water/sanitation contest is the second of four impactAFRICA competitions. The first contest, which closes on April 15, focuses on in-depth investigative reportage into hidden or neglected health and development issues.
The deadline is June 30.Read the full article here.
