Harambee Africa International

Harambee Africa International has started accepting entries for its biannual “Communicating Africa” media awards.  This is the fifth edition of a competition begun in 2004 to “counter stereotypes and the Western tendency to think that Africa has no say and plays a marginal role in the international community. The goal is to contribute to spreading a more genuine understanding of African people, their daily routines and normal life despite the tragic circumstances they often find themselves facing.”

The competition is open to students 25 years and under, who submit video-clips as well as TV documentaries distributed online.  The organizers point out that entries should deal with “ethnic, religious, social, economic, and cultural issues in Africa, with a particular focus on the importance of education for the peaceful development of the African society.”

Video submissions should be between 60 and 120 seconds in length.  Winners will be hosted at an international Harambee conference and will also go home with 1,500 Euros.

Competition rules, entry form and materials are available online. Deadline for the submission of entries is 15 September 2013.
