The purpose of this task is not to promote yourself on the blog - but rather to spend time watching, listening and observing how the blog operates with the goal of letting what you learn help shape your own blogging strategy.
There is a lot that a blogger can learn about spending time on other blogs (particularly those who are doing well). You can pick up all manner of ideas, strategies and tips both things that they do well that you might like to emulate but also things that they’re missing that could help you to differentiate yourself.
At the end of adjudications by the pan-African jury, four prizes were awarded: three prizes corresponding to the three categories announced, and a special award of encouragement.
The jury has rewarded blogs that illustrate good editorial line, quality of expression, interaction with internet users, originality, regular posts, a variety of format for content, blog developed by African journalists working in African media.
10 other blogs (all categories) have also attracted the attention of jury members and received their congratulations.
All best blogs will be properly promoted.
Can African reporters equipped with smart phones help improve accountability and transparency in development aid?
Africa Interactive is working to build a network of African journalist, photographers and filmmakers. This network consists of 400 individuals in 35 African countries. Last year we started documenting water and sanitation projects for International NGO’s like Akvo.org.
Local journalist use mobile phones as a tool to document and report on Water and Sanitation projects (See example below). The first videos we produced were used for fund raising efforts in the Netherlands. We were surprised to see that each project immediately received the funds they needed. We hope to go back later in the year and document the progress and to show the end result.
