Are you a young African journalist below 30 years of age?
Here is an opportunity for you.
A new award - "young journalist from the developing world" - is being sponsored by the Thomson Foundation for the UK Foreign Press Association (FPA) Awards.
The award will enable journalists aged 30, and under, from countries with Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita of less than $20,000, based on World Bank GDP data <http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/NY.GDP.PCAP.PP.CD?> , to enter their work for scrutiny by the foundation - the world's longest established international media development organisation - and then the FPA judges.
The three finalists will be flown to London, spend two nights in the city and attend the gala award night at the Sheraton Park Hotel on Tuesday, November 19, along with a host of other potential award winners and leading figures from the world of journalism.
The deadline for submission is 18th September 2013. Full details of entry are on the Thomson Foundation website, http://www.thomsonfoundation.org/young-journalist-award <http://http:/www.thomsonfoundation.org/young-journalist-award>
