The three best submissions will be awarded in Casablanca in December. The first prize winner will receive 3,500 euros, the second prize winner 1,500 euros and the third prize winner 1,000 euros.

  • An original and well-told story that we have never read before
  • A format that uses the possibilities of online journalism
  • Competent and extensive research, documented upon the submission of the article
