Recognizing the best African journalism on education

The Association for the Development of Education in Africa (ADEA) has launched an annual award that will recognize the best articles on education published in the African press. The aim of the competition is to highlight the importance of relevant and quality public information and communication for the development of education in Africa by encouraging African journalists to research on and cover education issues in the press.

Every year, a jury of education specialists and journalists will select two articles in English and two in French written by an African, from newspapers - daily, weekly and periodicals - published in Africa. The articles will be judged for their critical analyses, creativity, objectivity and relevance to education in Africa. First prize winners in each language category will be awarded a cash prize of 2000 euros and second prize winners 1000 euros. In addition, the winning articles will be published in the ADEA Newsletter, and their authors and editors-in-chief of the publication will be invited to Paris and London for a ten-day study visit which will include training seminars and visits to media houses and organizations.

An award ceremony will be organized every two years during the ADEA Biennale Meeting to honour the eight winners of the previous years and the 'Best of the Best'.
