Radio France International, the 24-hour world news station, and Reporters Without Borders, the international press freedom organisation, established this prize in 2001 to support and encourage talented journalists in 20 countries of French-speaking Africa and the Indian Ocean and publicise their work beyond the region. It is awarded for the best coverage of news in four categories - radio, the written press, photography and newspaper cartoons.

The judges, chaired by French writer, journalist and Africa specialist Jean de La Guérivière, include:
-  Jérôme Bouvier, chief editor of the French service of RFI
-  Nicolas Bruant, photographer
-  Marie-Soleil Frère, head of media projects, Agence Intergouvernementale de la Francophonie
-  Robert Ménard, secretary-general of Reporters Without Borders
-  Joël Robine, photographe, Agence France-Presse
-  Stephen Smith, journalist, Le Monde
-  Willem, cartoonist, Libération

The winners will receive 1,000 euros to spend, through the organisers, on journalistic equipment of their choice, as well as a week’s trip to Paris and training arranged by the Ecole des métiers de l’information-CFD journalists’ school.

Jean-Paul Cluzel, head of RFI, Robert Ménard and Jean de La Guérivière will present the prizes on 14 October at 12.30 p.m. at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie (5, rue de Fourcy, 75004 Paris), after an RFI press conference at 11.30 a.m.
