Media Monitoring Africa (MMA) invites journalists within the African continent to apply for the lsu Elihle Awards. Applications for this year’s awards which will close at midnight on the 30 June 2020.

‘Isu Elihle’ is an isiZulu phrase and could be translated into English as a beautiful, great or simply a neat solution.

MMA’s awards seek to give children a voice and highlight the status of children in our continent. Journalists are encouraged to submit their story ideas and these can be targeted at any mainstream news medium such as TV, Radio or Online. The top six story ideas will then be selected during an awards ceremony which will be held in September. Journalists behind these ideas will each receive guaranteed financial support of R10 000. MMA will also offer support to the finalists to develop their concepts. The final stories will be ranked and the final cash prizes will be awarded as follows: R25 000 (Overall Winner); R15 000 (2nd place); R10 000 (Third Place).
