Fact-checking competition open


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.
