ABOUT DLA ONLINE PITCH COMPETITION

 

The DLA’s  Selection Committees experts have selected the 30 finalists of DLA#3 (6 per category). They will all compete in the DLA online pitch competition. Young talents, artists, creators, entrepreneurs from all over Africa, they represent their country and the new generation of the digital creative industry (animation, digital music, video game, virtual reality and web creation).

The 30 competitors will have to defend their project in a short video (video pitch), displayed online on a dedicated platform developed by Zakhele Technologies. From the 15th to the 28th of April, 2019, Internet users will have the opportunity to watch and vote for their favorite project.

The 10 winning projects, as well as the DLA Audience Award recipient, will be announced at Tshimologong Precinct, Johannesburg on the 29th of April.

Each of the winning projects will be awarded with:

  • a ZAR 42,000 cash prize
  • a tailor-made incubation programme to accelerate their project with the support of 2 mentors, one from France, and one from Sub-Saharan African region. The incubation will include a residency period in France, within digital innovation hubs, as well as the participation in industry events in France and Sub-Saharan Africa.
