The Stories of Africa

2023 African Youth Storytelling Contest

Applications are now closed.

Thank you for sending your story. All submissions are currently being reviewed, and the selected winners will be announced at the GLF Nairobi 2023 Hybrid Conference on 10-11 October.

What is the African Storytelling Contest?

Do you have a powerful story to share about your vision for a thriving Africa where landscapes are healthy, communities prosper, and justice prevails? 

We believe that storytelling has the power to ignite change, inspire action and connect people across borders. After an incredible storytelling contest last year featuring stories from every corner of the continent, the 2023 Africa Youth Storytelling Contest will provide a platform for your visions to reach a global stage.

What’s in it for you?

The top 10 to 15 entries will be featured on our website and social media channels, as well as during GLF Nairobi 2023, reaching thousands of people gathered in person and online to forge a brighter future for the world’s landscapes.

Apart from the incredible opportunity to showcase your talent and share your vision with a global audience, the three best stories will receive prizes of EUR 500, 300 and 200 respectively.
