We welcome entries from African journalists based outside the continent as long as they have an outlet for their stories that is accessible to audiences in Africa.
The competition is open to all journalists aged 18 and above.
The competition is open to media organisations, online contributors with demonstrated followings, or affiliated freelance journalists.
Participants can apply in partnerships but if they win, the prize will be divided between the team. There can only be one entry per individual or team.
