Overcoming stereotypes. Showing a dynamic and rarely publicized side of Africa. This is the goal of the Harambee video contest for professionals and students.

"Africa is more than wars, Boko Haram, terrorism, poverty and illnesses. It's a continent that's growing and full of potential.” 

The sixth international 'Conveying Harambee' contest wants to give a spotlight to the positive, yet often overlooked side of Africa. So, the judges are looking for every day stories that reflect the hope and rise of the continent.

"We're talking about the role of education as a tool for sustainability, the family, solidarity and mutual help. This year, we also introduced a new focus which deals with telling a positive story of integration in society.” 

Under the professional category, the video report must have been aired between January 1st 2015 and June 30th. The deadline is July 30th and the winner will get 5,000 euros. The amateur video clip category is for students who are 25 years old or younger. The winner will receive 1,500 euros. 

The contest is international. So even though it was launched in Italy, it's a global call for entries.
