Afiroterminal.com partners with London OH TV to launch $3000 'I Love Afrtica' video competition
Afroterminal.com has partnered with OH TV (a UK TV Channel) to launch the $3000 'I Love Africa' video competition
There is so much bad press about Africa - and yet, for those of us from the beautiful continent - we know Africa is the future. We want to allow everyone express why they love our Motherland, through video. Most Africans are proud of where we come from; we just need to tell the world and show Africa in a positive light. The competition encourages users to create short videos showcasing why they love Africa. The videos can be as creative or simple as the users want it to be. It could be a dance, a song, a poem or a simple monologue.
After a voting process by the public, the 3 most popular videos (those with the most Afroterminal 'Likes') will be shortlisted. A celebrity panel of judges from across Africa will vote to select the winner from the 3 finalists. The winner will receive a $3000 cash prize, plus an OH Box (OH TV s portable digital TV modem).
Afroterminal.com which is a social network where Africans at home and abroad meet to make friends, and has been listed as one of Africa s hottest tech startups by Forbes recently launched a new 'Communities' ethos which encourages new and existing members to join communities , based on their location and topics of interest.
Entries for the competition open on Monday 19th November 2012, and the 3 finalists will be selected 3 months later.† Participants are encouraged to create and post their videos early, so that they can receive enough votes.
