Our innovative journalism competition has been won by Kenya-based journalist, Thomas Mwiraria, who wrote a graphic piece about a poverty-related plague in sub-Saharan Africa.
Thomas wins an all-expenses-paid trip to London to attend the 2020 Thomson Foundation five-week summer course, which includes a mixture of masterclasses, workshops and practical training and a week's placement at a leading UK media organisation.
Award-winning journalist, Ewen MacAskill, will guide you through the programme with interactive live sessions and ongoing feedback.
What you will need to do, in three steps:
Complete seven Thomson Foundation online courses (you don't need to re-take a course if you have previously completed it).
Attend or watch the replay of up to four webinars with Ewen MacAskill.
Work on and publish a multimedia story.
