DW Akademie Southern Africa: Journalism Idea Lab & Innovation Fund

In Southern Africa, DW Akademie is looking to support innovative ideas for the newsroom with a focus on data and AI.

Journalists and newsroom innovators from Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe can apply with their ideas to improve their newsrooms in the area of AI and data journalism to better serve their audiences.

The next innovation initiative starts with an IdeaLab in Namibia in September 2023 with innovative newsroom projects from Southern Africa, followed by a practical implementation of the ideas in late 2023.


  • You are part of an established media outlet or a civil society organisation that works journalistically and regularly publishes.

  • Your idea and your participation need to be endorsed by your organisation.

  • You must at least be 21 years old (or older) and have a passport (if from outside Namibia) and be able to travel to Windhoek in Namibia (travel expenses will be covered).

  • You must be based in Namibia, Malawi, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe or Lesotho.

  • You must commit to ethical journalism and its guidelines (like the Code of Ethics of the Editors Forum of Namibia or the core principles of the Ethical journalism Network)
