KAS Media Africa Local Journalism Award Call for Submissions 2024

KAS Media Africa invites you to make your submissions in English or French for consideration.

Local journalism is what makes the media and its audiences tick. It is the stories around us and about us, that speak to the situation in a country. Moreover, local news, if presented professionally, can be elevated to national level and sometimes, even make international headlines. Many local journalists struggle daily with breaking international news down to a local level. How does a coup d’état in Mali affect its neighbouring countries? What does climate change mean for the subsistence farmer in Zimbabwe?

They had been listening attentively to the web-TV presentation when the unexpected occurred: With a cameraman at his side, lecturer Markus Brauckmann, director of KAS Media Africa, did a spontaneous interview with several of the assembled political communicators, firsthand and unaffected. The activity was meant to demonstrate how simple and efficient internet television can really be.
