Isu Elihle Awards in Africa

Isu Elihle Awards in Africa

The Isu Elihle Awards Competition is an African initiative that promotes ethical and quality reporting on children’s issues. Isu Elihle, meaning “great idea” in isiZulu, challenges journalists to submit innovative story ideas that center children’s voices and hold authorities accountable.

The competition aims to empower journalists through mentorship, resource sharing, and financial support to develop and publish their child-focused stories on any mainstream news platform. It rewards innovative journalism about children and encourages journalists to rethink how they perceive and engage children on issues affecting them. The journey from initial idea to final published story demonstrates remarkable growth in storytelling.

This groundbreaking initiative fosters high-quality, child-centric journalism that amplifies children’s perspectives and drives positive change in media coverage of their issues.

Competition details:
The Competition is open to professional journalists, whether directly employed or freelancers, working in the continent of Africa and there is no entry fee payable.

Story ideas can be targeted at any mainstream news medium such as TV, Radio or Online.

The final stories will be ranked once they have been published or broadcast, and
the final cash prizes will be awarded: ZAR 25 000 (Overall Winner); ZAR 15 000 (2nd place); ZAR 10 000 (Third Place).
