Jamlab is looking to build a media database, where it will list established independent digital journalism and media organisations or platforms in Africa.

The database will include platforms, publications, or organisations operating within digital media in Africa. To this end, they are inviting independent media organisations to contribute to the effort.

To be included in the database, organisations should meet the following criteria:

  • Original content: The majority of the content should be original and the work produced should be of a journalistic nature.
  • Existing journalism and media start-ups.
  • Independent: Organisations or platform should not be part of a traditional media group, politician or government office, or a major private company.
