The BBC has launched an award in honour of its presenter, Komla Dumor, a year after his unexpected death aged 41.

Komla Dumor was an exceptional Ghanaian broadcaster who in his short life made an extraordinary impact in Ghana, Africa and around the world.

The award known as BBC World News Komla Dumor Award will be given to an outstanding individual living and working in Africa, who combines strong journalism skills and an exceptional talent in telling African stories, with the ambition and potential to become a star of the future.

The winner will be given an opportunity to gain recognition and experience, working with teams across BBC News during a three month placement in London.
