2024 Isu Elihle Awards Competition for African Journalists by MMA

2024 Isu Elihle Awards Competition for African Journalists by MMA

The Isu Elihle Awards Competition is an African initiative that promotes ethical and quality reporting on children’s issues. Isu Elihle, meaning “great idea” in isiZulu, challenges journalists to submit innovative story ideas that center children’s voices and hold authorities accountable.

The competition aims to empower journalists through mentorship, resource sharing, and financial support to develop and publish their child-focused stories on any mainstream news platform. It rewards innovative journalism about children and  encourages journalists to rethink how they perceive and engage children on issues affecting them. The journey from initial idea to final published story demonstrates remarkable growth in storytelling.

This groundbreaking initiative fosters high-quality, child-centric journalism that amplifies children’s perspectives and drives positive change in media coverage of their issues.
