Zimeo is a dynamic network of media professionals and associations as well as media development specialists. The network is tailored to cater to the pertinent needs of members with the aim of building a vibrant, responsible and professional media on the continent.

This unique membership club brings together individuals and organizations that strive for excellence in the media through technology adaptation, ethical leadership and a heightened sense of the media’s role in development in the new, vibrant and promising Africa.

In 2015, AMI launched the Zimeo “Excellence in Media” Awards to recognise excellence in journalism and other media-related activities in Africa. The annual awards honor meritorious individuals and organizations that, in their writings, productions or support for media development, demonstrate the highest standards of professionalism, focus and impact.

The competition accepts entries from  professional journalists working on the African continent. Stories which have been produced and published in any medium, including printed publications, TV, Radio or digital platforms can be submitted for consideration in the awards.
