The APO Group African Women in Media award was open to African women journalists whose stories were broadcast or published between January 1 and September 15, 2019. The stories are judged on content, writing, analysis, creativity, human interest and community impact.
The AWIEF event is a prestigious annual gathering of global thought leaders, industry experts, policymakers, academics, development organisations and investors, who come together to dialogue, connect, network, share, collaborate and transact in a combined effort to boost Africa’s entrepreneurship ecosystem for women.
