Journalists in Nigeria who tell migration stories can enter a contest and compete for cash prizes.

To participate, journalists are invited to submit their published print, online or broadcast stories on the thematic areas: irregular migration, return and reintegration, migrant protection, and migrants with vulnerabilities.

Stories published or aired between July 2021 and February 2022 are eligible for submission.

The first-place winner in the print, radio, television and online categories will receive US$800 each. The second and third place winners in each category will receive US$500 and US$300, respectively.

The deadline is May 6.
