Harambee International has launched a global video contest to showcase what is right about Africa. The contest is open to professional journalists and to students and will cover everyday topics such as the role of education, the family and sustainability, as well as positive stories of societal integration. The winner in the professional category will have produced a programme that has aired between January 1 and June 30, 2015, and will go home with a prize money of 5,000 Euros, while the winner in the amateur category will win 1,500 Euros.
As Mrs Rossella Miranda of Harambee, from her headquarters in Rome, explains in the video on this page, the story of Africa is more than wars, about disease, poverty or terrorism. This is why the contest organisers want to highlight the dynamic and often unpublished but positive stories from the continent.
