African Tech for Good Video Blogging Competition 2018


Are you fighting climate change in Africa using new technology?  Send a 3 minute video for chance to win US$500

Deadline, 31 August 2018

Sharing inspiring stories of success

As in much of the world, Africa is facing a number of challenges, including changes to climate and weather patterns. Many countries and particular regions are facing problems with drought and food security.

As the growth in internet use continues across Africa and the spread of technology grows wider, people are increasingly turning to technology to find ways of tackling these problems.  There are many inspiring stories of  success available across the continent.

We want to see short 3 minute video diaries showing how groups and organisations are using technology to fight climate change and work towards the Sustainable Development Goals.

We want to hear those stories, and share them with other people in Africa and the world.

Submit videos that showcase your activities to combat climate change using technology and new approaches

From solar powered electrification and the use of mobile telephones, from up-to-date weather information and apps for farmers to sell their produce direct to consumers, technology is changing the way people live in Africa, and addressing many of the problems around climate change.

Films will be shortlisted by our judging team and the top ideas will be uploaded to YouTube and promoted through our web site and social media.  The public will decide the top five videos, each of which will be awarded a prize of $US500.

The best solutions will be showcased in our Case Study Library so other people through out Africa and the world can benefit from new technology and innovative ideas.
