The Media Investment Development Fund (MIDF) is offering the Nigeria Media Innovation Program (NAMIP) Innovation Challenge.  

The NAMIP Innovation Challenge seeks applications from media organizations that are building innovative news and information products that explore opportunities to reach and connect with broader audiences through digital platforms and technologies, or develop new revenue generation opportunities or sustainable business models.
