Offer: African Story Challenge:up to US$20,000 grants

This is a pan-African, 2-year challenge that encourages innovative, multimedia, solutions-oriented "storytelling" that positively impacts the lives of the African people. Those interested are highly encouraged to read the in-depth description on the website. http://africanstorychallenge.com/

To quote from the African Story Challenge site: "The goal of The African Story Challenge is to contribute to the building of a strong media sector able to deliver content that matters to the African public. We are looking for compelling, analytical, investigative and data-driven stories that will help spur better policies and healthier lives, increase transparency, hold officials accountable and disseminate vital information that will lead to more vibrant communities. We encourage entries that will use creative digital tools like mapping, crowd sourcing and visualisation to help tell the story."
