Leading African Social Network launches $3000 'I Love Africa' Video Competition
To celebrate the launch of their new 'Communities' feature,Afroterminal.com- the leading African Social Network, has partnered with OH TV (a UK TV Channel) to launch the $3000 'I Love Africa' video competition.
Afroterminal.com, touted by Forbes in 2012 as one of Africa's hottest tech start-ups, is an online social network focused on creating and sustaining friendships for its African members. Unlike many social platforms across Africa which focus on memberships from a specific country, Afroterminal.com boasts of a very diverse membership – with regular members hailing from all 53 African countries.
Afroterminal.com has recently launched a new 'Communities' ethos which encourages new and existing members to join Communities, based on their location and topics of interest. The Communities model re-enforces Afroterminal.com's focus on the African culture - which is rich in mutual respect, family and community spirit.
After a voting process by the public, the 3 most popular videos (those with the most Afroterminal 'Likes') will be shortlisted. A celebrity panel of judges from across Africa will vote to select the winner from the 3 finalists. The winner will receive a $3000 cash prize, plus an OH Box (OH TV’s portable digital TV modem).
Entries for the competition open on Monday 19th November 2012, and the 3 finalists will be selected 3 months later. "We encourage members of the public to create and post their videos early, so that they can receive enough votes. 3 months gives our participants the opportunity to create their videos, and gives the public enough time to vote,” says Charles Akpom.
