55Voices for a Visa Free Africa Writing Competition 2019 is calling for applications. Every year thousands of African youth experience challenges as they travel across the African continent. This often translates to lost opportunities for work, business and leisure because of onerous visa processes. The writing competition is one of the platforms under the #VisaFreeAfrica Campaign that is aimed at putting a face to the large number of young Africans missing out on these opportunities. The competition invites you to share your story and spread awareness on the need for a #VisaFreeAfrica.
With the support of National Aviation Services (NAS), a leading aviation services provider, the Kigali Global Shapers and the Global shapers community are spreading their message for a #VisaFreeAfrica across the continent and beyond. The #VisaFreeAfrica petition is part of a continental effort to ease the visa procedures across the continent and promote freedom of movement.
Winners will receive a cash prize of US$1,500 and furthermore, their article will get published.
You need to submit the application form in order to get considerations.
