Editorial Input

Contributors and PR execs:
We aim to provide the best possible coverage of Africa. This means we welcome any information or material potentially relevant to mobile telecommunications companies and manufacturers operating in Africa.

If you know something new or have something interesting to say about mobile communications in Africa, we would very much like to hear about it. Credit will be given where requested and anonymity respected if so desired (though anonymity can weaken credibility).

We welcome unsolicited contributions for which credit will be given. However, there is no guarantee of publication and material may be subject to severe editing. We do not carry blatant plugs or advertorials.

We are always looking for new and interesting material so welcome ideas, proposals and potential copy. Bear in mind that Mobile Africa is a niche publication.

Please do not blitz us with unrelated material and if a link is somewhat vague, please make it clear (e.g. a subcontractor’s relationship with a telco, supplier or the elements of a conference agenda relating).
