Women storytellers and women-owned media organizations and outlets based in Africa are eligible for project grants.

Africa No Filter is offering grants to African female storytellers and content creators with a goal to give space to voices that are historically misrepresented and underrepresented across the continent.

Interested applicants must have a proposed project focused on increasing narratives and stories that reflect a more diverse and dynamic continent.

Journalists, bloggers, vloggers, content creators and podcasters can apply for Project Support Grants worth up to US$10,000. Organizations can apply for Operational Support and Capacity-Building Grants worth up to US$25,000.

All applicants should have a track record of creating work that challenges stereotypical narratives of Africa through innovative, creative and compelling storytelling.

The application deadline is April 11.
