The BBC is seeking a rising star of African journalism for the BBC World News Komla Dumor Award, now in its sixth year.
Journalists from across Africa are invited to apply for the award, which aims to uncover and promote fresh talent from the continent.
The winner will spend three months at the BBC headquarters in London, gaining skills and experience.
Applications close on March 16, 2020, 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 South African city of Johannesburg.
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.
