Applications for African Women in Media 2020 Summit are now open. African Women in Media (AWiM) is organizing the fourth annual conference. It aims to bring together media practitioners, researchers, policymakers, and CSOs.

The AWiM2020 Summit takes place in Johannesburg, South Africa on 29-31 July 2020 with the theme Reimagining Futures; Women in Media, Peace, and Technologies. ‘Re-imagining Futures’ reflects innovation in media industries, and the growing drive to change the narrative of Africa globally, particularly as African countries work towards achieving a dominant global position, and urgent objectives like Silencing the Guns by 2020, Free movement of people, and the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). Issues around movement, immigration, peace and security, and also the lived experiences, roles, and insights of women in media practitioners, policymakers, CSOs and researchers make the AWiM2020 Summit a timely focal point to bring these stakeholders together.

Thematic areas 

  • The prospects of free movement across the continent as well as the potential impact for female media professionals in Africa, and media and creative industries broadly;
  • The lived experiences of women in media as participants of peacebuilding and conflict prevention; and,
  • Emerging technologies and also how Africa’s media might leveraging these to improve issues affecting female journalists.


The African Women in Media 2020 Summit is particularly open for women in media in Africa. This is the platform to utilize their profession to both raise awareness and mediate in the conflict, gives rise to pertinent questions around the effectiveness of media-for-peace initiatives, the lived experiences of African women in the media in security reporting, and policy provisions in this regard.

Overall, the abstract should be 150-300 words in English or French. Furthermore, please include details about your positions, affiliations, and email addresses for all authors. All submissions should be sent to [email protected] with ‘AWiM2020 CFP’ in the subject line by 20 January 2020.
