Print, broadcast and online journalists whose works held public figures accountable can compete for cash prizes.

Africa Check and the AFP Foundation are accepting applications for the African Fact-Checking Awards. The awards honor journalism that exposes misleading claims made by public figures and institutions.

Works must be original pieces of fact-checking journalism first published or broadcast between Sept. 1, 2014 and Aug. 31, 2015 by a media house based in Africa.

Entries may have been published or broadcast in any language, but must include a translation into either French or English.

The winner will receive a cash prize of EUR2,000 (US$2,248). The two runners-up will receive a prize of EUR1,000 (US$1,124) each.

The deadline is Aug. 31.
