Scenarios from Africa AIDS Contest
Non Profit Awards » Contest for Africa » Competition for Young Africans
Scenarios from Africa is inviting young people aged 24 years and younger to submit creative, original ideas for a film of up to 5 minutes in length, about HIV and AIDS.
Selected ideas will be adapted by professional scriptwriters, turned into films by some of Africa's current film directors, and broadcast on national and international television.
The idea can take a variety of forms, such as a short story, a comic strip, a song, or a poem. Applicants can record their ideas on an audio or video cassette or CD, complete with music.
Thirty winners, or teams, will each receive a medal, a personalised certificate, a Scenarios from Africa DVD set, a prize of US$125 (EU€100), as well as the possibility to have a film based on their idea made and shown on television.
In addition, one of the international contest winners or winning teams will be awarded the grand prize: US$1,500 (EU€1,200).
Contest winners will receive their prizes before 31st December at the address they give on their questionnaire.
Only one prize will be given to each winning team.
Contestants can take part individually or in a team. Also, if someone would like to take part in the contest, but doesn't write in English, he/she can work together with others. Each team must choose a leader. Participants are encouraged to talk to organisations or individuals in their community who can provide them with good information on AIDS, as they create their scenario.
Each scenario may be up to 10 pages long (maximum). The length of scenarios recorded on cassettes or CDs may not be more than 10 minutes. The contestant’s name (or the name of the team leader) must be at the top of each page.
Submissions must reach the Scenarios from Africa team, either by post or by email, prior to March 15
