Deadline: 16 September 2016
Applicants are invited to apply for The Haller Prize 2016 for Development Journalism. The Haller Prize for Development Journalism was created in order to promote African-led discussions around development. The continent is changing and as issues facing the developing world grow more complex, journalism has become a critical medium in which to throw light on them and chronicle real change.
The Haller Prize will be awarded to a writer able to explore insightfully the challenges and opportunities of digital technology in the development sector. There will be 3 winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd place) and the successful entries will offer unique interpretations; either shedding light on sector failings or offering comment on best practice.
Applicants will be awarded for a piece of original, previously unpublished written work up to 1000 words in length. To date, our prize winners have gone on to write articles for the UN; have been shortlisted for Thomson Reuters awards; and been invited to attend African Development Bank conventions on climate change.
- 1st Prize GBP 3000,
- 2nd Prize GBP 1000
- 3rd Prize GBP 500
- The Prize is open to all sub-Saharan African nationals, resident in the region, aged 18 and over.
- The only people who cannot enter are those who are employees, volunteers, representatives or other agencies of the Haller Foundation (HF), their family members or anyone else connected to the Competition.
