Africa Centre for Media Excellence (ACME)

Africa Centre for Media Excellence (ACME) is a non-profit media support organisation that champions excellence in journalism and mass communication in Africa, starting at home in Uganda. It occupies the space between the media industry and academic institutions that train journalists and offer degree and diploma qualifications. ACME’s niche is to provide quality journalism training and related interventions with a short turnaround time, something that a university would not easily do because of its bureaucratic nature.

Project title: Enhanced Media Reporting For Civic Engagement and Accountability (EMERCEA)

Project description: The project seeks to provide standards within media and for media practitioners, as well as media monitoring of elections. It will contribute towards the realisation of a vibrant and reliable media that consistently produces quality public affairs journalism that empowers citizens to engage in democratic processes.
