New United Nations Environmental Programme African Journalist Award


Mike Shanahan from the International Institute for Environment and Development sent me this:
UNEP invites African journalists between 25 and 35 years old, working for African news and media organizations, to compete for this new award.  The winner will be a journalist (print, radio, television, or online) who has provided new insights, challenged established thinking, and enhanced public understanding of the environment in Africa in 2010.  The winner will receive a trip to the USA to interact with environmental projects, environmental journalists, scientists, and public figures.  The closing date is 31 December 2010.   http://www.unep.org/yeja/
I would encourage you to make application. It is always worthwhile engaging with something when it is still getting established.
