As part of the “The Boma of Africa” festival, we are organizing a “Creative Arts Challenge” to invite all artists and creatives from across Africa to submit their daily artistic work across the categories of poetry, short story, animation/game, culinary art (recipe or short video guide), cartoons, short video, short audio, visual art, fashion, and craft).

Entrants are to submit daily artistic work exploring these themes – African Unity is About Difference, African Science is Universal Science, Africa’s Future is in its Past and Globalization is Africa’s Friend.

Entrants are to use their creatives to oppose or support the themes in their explorations in subtle and not so subtle ways. Applications open until July 7th, 2020, and creatives may enter as many times and in as many categories as they wish.

The best creative submissions shall be widely disseminated every day on the festival website and through the AU’s media and publicity partners. The grand prize or one of two consolation prizes are all sponsored by Africa’s leading corporations and will be communicated soon.

There are no entry fees associated with this program. Applications are open to only Africans.
