·        2014 CATEGORIES REFLECT VIBRANT AFRICAN MEDIA LANDSCAPE

CNN International and MultiChoice this week officially launched the CNN MultiChoice African Journalist 2014 Awards. 

The competition for African nationals based on the continent welcomes entries from journalists creating content targeting an African audience.

Also this year, the competition has become even easier for journalists to enter, with submissions being made via the entry form website http://www.cnnmcaja.cnn.com.

Tony Maddox, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of CNN International, said“Since the very beginning, these Awards have discovered and rewarded superlative African journalism across the continent.  With even more of Africa’s storytellers now able to share their work with us, we expect even more outstanding entries.  The categories this year also perfectly mirror the reality of today’s Africa’s multi-platform media scene. As Africa’s leading news provider, we’re delighted to play our part in supporting the excellent journalism these Awards yield annually.”

Nico Meyer, CEO MultiChoice Africa, said: “As we enter our 10th year as partners to the CNN MultiChoice African Journalist Awards, we continue to be amazed and honoured by the phenomenal impact that this initiative has had on the continent. It certainly has been a game changer for the advancement of media development and quality journalism, showcasing top-class journalists who can compete heads and shoulders with their peers on the world stage. This year promises to once again highlight Africa’s best journalistic talent.”

South Africans Msindisi Fengu and Yandisa Monakali, from South Africa were awarded the top prize at the CNN MultiChoice African Journalist 2013 Awards ceremony. Their work ‘Investigation series: School hostels of Shame’, which appeared in South African daily print newspaper Daily Dispatch investigated the appalling conditions being experienced by thousands of pupils in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, uncovering hygiene and safety risks in school hostels and lifting the lid on corruption within the education department. It was chosen from 1387 entries from 42 nations across the African continent.

Over the past 19 years, the competition has grown in size and status to become Africa’s most prestigious media event. In 2013, a ‘Highlights Programme’ of the ceremony, held in Cape Town, South Africa, was broadcast in 46 African countries, plus the UK, USA and the Caribbean.

Open to journalists working in any medium, this year the competition will recognise excellence in the following categories:
