Calling on all Kenyan film enthusiasts.
For the third year in a row, the German embassy based in Nairobi is inviting people to participate in a mobile phone short video competition. It’s dubbed the #BomoaUkuta competition with the tag line ‘which walls do you want to tear down?’
The aim of the competition is to give Kenyans a chance to share the obstacles they face as individuals and as a society. Competitors can share how they overcame such obstacles through short video clips on all major social networks in Kenya, and stand a chance to win one of the following prizes:
1. A videographer starter pack consisting of an iPhone 11 (128 GB), a steadycam and a clip-on microphone to continue your creative voyage as a mobile video artist.
2. A brand new Android Smartphone (2021), a tripod and a clip-on microphone.
3. A brand new Android Smartphone and a microphone.
In addition, all the top 10 entrants of the #BomoaUkuta 2021 competition will also get the opportunity to participate in our brand new Masterclass and meet established Kenyan filmmakers. The winners will be announced on October 1st 2021. The winning video will be featured on the German embassy social media pages as well as other online events.
You have till the 19th of September to send them in. Check out the terms and conditions and how to apply here.
