Journalists, student journalists and other content creators can participate in this training program.

The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ), in partnership with the Facebook Journalism Project, has launched the Video Storytellers-Africa.

The program features a six-week, self-directed course starting Sept. 21 led by Hashtag Our Stories, a global network of mobile storytellers.

The course will prepare participants to discover story ideas as well as shoot, script, edit, upload and distribute high-quality videos using a mobile phone.

Storytellers who successfully complete the course may apply to participate in a mentorship program and compete for prizes of US$1,500.

The deadline is Sept. 18.
