AIF launches #AfrinnovChallenge for digital artists


The African Innovation Foundation (AIF) has announced its African Digital Art competition – #AfrinnovChallenge – offering digital artists the chance to attend the Innovation Prize for Africa award ceremony if they impress with their art showcasing the continent’s innovation ecosystem.

The screening process for the awards, but in the meantime the AIF is inviting those who want to showcase innovators or the innovation ecosystem around Africa to do so by submitting examples of their photography, graphic design, infographics or audio/visual production for the chance to win a free ticket.

“Why? We would like to promote innovative solutions to development challenges within Africa while understanding the African’s perspectives on innovation, showcasing its transformative power and empowering nature,” the AIF said.

Digital artists are invited to submit a signed entry form and their work to [email protected] by February 15, after which 10 finalists will be voted for on the hashtag #AfrinnovChallenge.

The final two winners will be selected from the 10 finalists, with these two entrants invited to attend the award ceremony and network with innovators and leaders in their field.

“You will also have their video/image shown at the gala venue in Morocco, as well as the chance to continue working with AIF on the foundation’s creative material, should you wish to,” the AIF said.
