The Guardian International Development- Journalism Competition

Do you have the ability to be a top-notch journalist? Could you write the sort of articles the Guardian would be happy to publish? Here is the chance for your work to be published alongside some of the best journalism in the UK.

The Guardian, in partnership with eight UK-based international non-government organisations (NGOs), wants to find exciting new voices in journalism. We are looking for anyone who is willing to rise to the challenge of writing about some of the most crucial issues facing the developing world today - issues that are often overlooked or underrepresented by the media.

The competition is backed and principally funded by the UK Department for International Development (Dfid) as part of an initiative to raise public awareness of such issues.

There are two strands of entry into this competition. GSK are also playing a major part in funding the competition.

1. For professional freelance journalists (people who have been published before - excluding student journalists - who are not employees of media organisations)
2. For amateurs - including students. Anyone who is not a professional journalist is welcome to enter

How to enter All you need to do is write a 650-1000 word article on an aspect of global poverty covered by a range of themes, and upload it using the online entry form

About the competition The Guardian in association with Dfid and GSK are launching this competition in partnership with Marie Stopes International, Camfed International, International HIV/Aids Alliance, HelpAge International, Plan UK, the Malaria Consortium, Sightsavers International and WaterAid.
