AGL, a key player in Africa’s transport and logistics activities, joins the African branch of the International Sports Press Association to create the AIPS Africa 2023 award.
The award aims to showcase journalistic activities highlighting the social and economic impacts of the African Cup of Nations (CAN), the continent’s biggest football competition. The AIPS Africa 2023 award also aims to promote sport, especially football, as an inclusion and social cohesion factor in Africa.
The prize includes four categories: print, television, radio and web. Applicants must submit works published or broadcast in a recognised and publicly accessible medium between 1 January 2023 and 20 January 2024. Contributions must be original, relevant and creative, and must respect professional ethics. A jury comprising media and sports personalities in Africa will select one winner per category, and special mentions if necessary. The winners will be announced at an official ceremony to be held on 25 January 2024 in Abidjan. They will receive trophies, certificates and cash prizes worth €1,500 per category, provided by AGL.
“Our support for the CAF and this partnership with the AIPS Africa award reflect our commitment to promote and celebrate Africa’s rich sporting heritage. This mission is essential to inspire and unite young people across the continent,” stated Asta-Rosa Cissé, AGL Regional Manager for the Côte d’Ivoire – Burkina Faso region.
The presentation of the prize and rules for participation are attached to this press release. For more information on the AIPS Africa 2023 award, please contact AIPS Africa at email@example.com or visit the AGL website.
