ANF Storify Africa Fellowship 2022 for Young and Emerging African Storytellers | $500 Monthly Stipend

ANF Storify Africa Fellowship

Africa No Filter (ANF) is seeking four female journalists from across the continent to be a part of the inaugural cohort of fellows.

Storify Africa is a narrative change and storytelling initiative housed within ANF. They partner with organisations that want to communicate and amplify the issues they care about on the continent through stories that center the voices and perspectives of those they serve.

ANF Storify Africa Fellowship Program Details

The Storify Africa Fellowship trains, supports and builds the capacity of young and emerging African storytellers to tell those stories. In doing so, Fellows help organisations shift entrenched stereotypes, and highlight their impact in a way that avoids reinforcing damaging narratives about Africa.

Each cohort of Fellows is assigned to a specific organisation and topic area, and will receive training in best practice feature writing techniques and tools to dig deep into the relevant issues. As Fellows, you will have full editorial independence in producing multimedia stories, including written, video, and photographic entries. You will also receive regular editorial support and guidance in developing, editing and fact-checking stories.

Stories produced by the Fellows will be published and disseminated through ANF’s story agency, bird, and their media network, with full bylines. As Fellows, you will also join a large and growing network of narrative-shifting journalists and artists across the continent.

ANF Storify Africa Fellowship Eligibility

  • Open to female journalists based in East Africa, West Africa (including one Francophone country), and Southern Africa.
  • Stories are expected to be written and produced in English. Final drafts will be also translated into French.

  • Proficiency in English – both writing and speaking.

  • Creative thinker, curious, interested in and thoughtful about shifting the negative perceptions of Africa by Africans.

Benefits of ANF Storify Africa Fellowship
