impactAFRICA Annual Journalism Contest


impactAFRICA is the continent’s largest fund for data-driven storytelling.

We offer $500,000 in support for pioneering data journalism and innovative reporting that tackles development issues, such as public healthcare, in six African countries: Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia.

Our support goes beyond cash. We also provide technology assistance from our civic labs in all six countries, as well as one-on-one editorial mentoring, digital skills training, and content syndication services. The initiative is intended to spur newsroom experimentation and innovative storytelling, while also encouraging more evidence-based public discourse.

Details about the skills programme, which is open to anyone who wants to participate (not just those who submit proposals to impactAFRICA), can be found here.

Participants who wish to submit proposals should focus on in-depth reportage into hidden, neglected or under-reported health and development issues.

You can get a detailed explanation of how impactAFRICA’s four annual journalism contests work on our FAQ pages.
