Africa No Filter (ANF), a donor collaborative working to shift stereotypical and harmful narratives within and about Africa, is launching the Storify Africa Fellowship, and is seeking four female journalists from across the continent to be a part of the inaugural cohort of fellows. Storify Africa is a narrative change and storytelling initiative housed within ANF. They partner with organisations who want to communicate and amplify the issues they care about on the continent through stories that center the voices and perspectives of those they serve.

The Storify Africa Fellowship trains, supports and builds the capacity of young and emerging African storytellers to tell those stories. In doing so, Fellows help organisations shift entrenched stereotypes, and highlight their impact in a way that avoids reinforcing damaging narratives about Africa.

As Fellows, you will have full editorial independence in producing multimedia stories, including written, video, and photographic entries. You will also receive regular editorial support and guidance in developing, editing and fact checking stories. Stories produced by the Fellows will be published and disseminated through their story agency, bird, and their media network, with full bylines. As Fellows, you will also join a large and growing network of narrative-shifting journalists and artists across the continent.
