Each of us has a story; and stories need telling. The East African Community is giving you, the youth aged between 18 to 35 years, the chance to tell your story, your way. For the video makers, the animators and the storytellers, we are looking for you to revolutionise the citizens’ engagement space. You have 59 seconds to tell us what inspires you, the change you wish to see and the future EAC you want to live in.
From live-action, drama or even a documentary, the genre is entirely up to you. The total award prize is $25,000 with over 30 winners being selected form the East Africa region.
Individual or group submissions are welcome; so, you and your friends can take part.
The competition period is between 1st January to 31st March 2020.
