Applications are open for the Tony Elumelu Storytellers Fund 2022. They call on emerging artists, journalists and content creators including bloggers, vloggers, and podcasters whose work offer a more contemporary and authentic narrative of entrepreneurship and entrepreneurs in Africa.
Celebrating and sharing stories of entrepreneurs come in many forms; a photo, drawing or painting of an inspirational figure can tell a thousand stories and transcend a thousand languages. Just like a great entrepreneur takes an idea and turns it into a profitable business, a great artist finds a muse and turns it into something relatable, intriguing, and timeless – Africa No Filter wants to support you to create this work.
They are particularly keen on supporting storytellers telling an interesting, unique story about Entrepreneurship in Africa; stories amplify unheard voices, challenge global perspectives and introduce contemporary narratives. The Tony Elumelu storytellers Fund allows creativity and innovation – think about what you want your reader or viewer to take away from this work and the type of impact you want to create, locally and globally.
Named after patron, African business leader and philanthropist, Tony O. Elumelu, the project is jointly funded by Heirs Insurance and Heirs Life Assurance.
The Fund awarded to content creators in two categories: Media and Arts.
All candidates must apply only once, using your best idea to apply. All recipients of the Tony Elumelu Fund must complete their projects by October 2022.
