One World Media Africa Journalism Fellowship Accepting Entries

Gemma Bradshaw
Director of One World Media

One World Media, a non-profit organisation, based in London, in collaboration with the Financial Times, a British daily business newspaper, is accepting entries from mid-career journalists based in and covering Sub-Saharan Africa, with an ambitious written story to tell a global audience, for the Financial Times Africa Journalism Fellowship.

The Fellowship seeks a writer who can break down a complex story in simple language, compellingly, in a way that has wide appeal and relatability. Interested entrants should prepare to demonstrate strong writing skills and an ability to write engagingly and incisively about economic, corporate, and market issues.

The selected Fellow will produce a piece of long-form journalism – an economic or business story from the region that resonates with Financial Times’ global audience.

The Financial Times Fellow will join the existing One World Media Fellowship cohort to learn alongside a talented worldwide peer group while receiving guidance and a reporting grant of £1,000.

The Financial Times will provide further training, editorial support, and one-to-one mentoring from senior editors, with the aim of showcasing the final piece on their global platform.

Submission of applications closes on October 5, 2023.
