BBC launches 2018 Komla Dumor Award

The BBC is seeking a rising star of African journalism for the BBC World News Komla Dumor Award, now in its fourth year. Journalists from across the continent are invited to apply for the award, which aims to uncover and promote fresh talent from Africa.

The winner will spend three months at the BBC headquarters in London, gaining skills and experience.

Applications close on 23 March 2018 at 23:59 GMT.

The award was established to honour Komla Dumor, an exceptional Ghanaian broadcaster and presenter for BBC World News, who died suddenly aged 41 in 2014.

This year’s award is being launched from the Ghanaian capital Accra.

It will be made to an outstanding individual living and working in Africa, who combines strong journalism skills, on-air flair, and an exceptional talent in telling African stories with the ambition and potential to become a star of the future.

As well as spending time with the BBC in London, the winner will also get to travel to Africa to report a story – and have that story shared across the continent and the world. Previous winners of the award are Nancy Kacungira from Uganda, Didi Akinyelure from Nigeria and Amina Yuguda, also from Nigeria.
