Deadline: April 11, 2022

Applications are invited for the Africa No Filter Media Grant 2022 for Women storytellers. Women’s voices are still underrepresented in the media. To help close this gap, the latest Media Grants by Africa No Filter are aimed exclusively at women storytellers and women-owned media organisations and outlets.
