APPLICATION: Bounce Corruption Innovative Contest for Radio Ambassadors, #2nd Batch

About the Campaign

Bounce Corruption is designed to mobilize citizens especially youth to lead the war against corruption and impunity as well as hold public institutions and officials accountable at the local and national level. The campaign seeks to build resistance against corruption by exposing corrupt practices and demanding prosecution of indicted suspects. Through #BounceCorruption, YIAGA AFRICA is establishing resource platforms for effective anti-corruption campaigns and public outreach. The platforms will promote anticorruption efforts by other stakeholders fighting against corruption and promoting public accountability. More importantly, the project will aspire to inculcate the values of integrity, patriotism, transparency and accountability in citizens. #BounceCorruption will facilitate collaboration and networking with different stakeholders involved in the campaign against corruption and impunity in Nigeria. Bounce Corruption is a citizen’s movement dedicated to achieve three specific objectives:

  1. Frame corruption as a socio-economic and political problem demanding urgent wide public support
  2. Unveiling and expose corruption
  3. Empower citizens to fight corruption and impunity

Scope of contest

The contest seeks innovative ideas on how to use radio and social media to promote anticorruption in Nigeria. The #BounceCorruption Radio Ambassadors are invited to submit entries on innovative ideas for fighting corruption through radio program engagement in their states. The innovative ideas on anti-corruption will be reviewed and winners selected through a competitive process. The radio projects may include but not limited to social audit of community resources; investigative coverage of trials/corruption cases; radio town hall meetings on corruption, broadcast discussions on corruption; whistle-blower interviews and many more.
