We are looking to build a media database, where we list established independent digital journalism and media organisations/platforms in Africa. We hope this database will include platforms, publications, or organisations operating within digital media in Africa.  

At a later stage, we would of course cast the net wider for other platforms. 


Criteria for selection/inclusion 

What criteria do we use to select organisations listed on the database? 

  • Original content: The majority of the content should be original and the work produced must be of a journalistic nature.
  • Existing journalism and media startups will be included 
  • Independent: Organisations or platform should not be part of a traditional media group, politician or government office, or a major private companies. 

If you know of or are working for a digital media publication that you believe should be listed on this database, please fill in the form below.
