Are you a journalist with a story that exposes corruption, human rights abuse or misuse of power in the public and private sectors in Cameroon? Then this Investigative Reporting Competition is for you.
An Investigative Reporting (Journalism) Award 2015 has been launched with journalists invited to submit entries in English or French on Investigative Reporting with focus on Human Rights and Governance in Cameroon (stories that break new ground and expose corruption, human rights abuse or misuse of power in the public and private sectors).
The British High Commission has, since 2012, conceived a project called Investigative Journalism Award to support an improved and responsible press that will strengthen the foundations of freedom of expression in Cameroon. The award runs a competition open to all journalists working in Cameroon. The competition gives awards to top three journalists who produce the best investigative journalism pieces on one or both themes: “Corruption or Human Rights”.
This year’s (2015) award is being implemented by AFRICAphonie-Cameroon.
The award is open to all journalists of the print and audio-visual media who are either freelancers or are employed by a local media organization in Cameroon.
