The Continent newspaper invites writers and journalists to submit pitches about organisations and individuals facilitating access to justice.
The newspaper seeks an interesting take on an underreported issue or group as well as an original angle about a story already in the news.
For this project, the Continent will pay writers and journalists US$200 per story.
Applicants based on the African continent, of African descent or writing from an African perspective can submit pitches.
Writing must be well-articulated and must put forward a distinctive argument or measured comment and analysis.
