The Future Awards Africa (TFAA), Nigeria’s foremost youth awards, has announced its call for nominations for the 2018 edition. Building on the theme ‘Nigeria’s New Tribe’ launched in 2017, the 13th edition of the prestigious awards seeks to reward excellence by celebrating advocates, creators, and pioneers between the ages of 18 and 31 – young people who have made significant strides, defying the odds within the year under consideration.
By driving sustaining positive change, while ignoring tribal, economic uncertainty or religious differences, the new tribe is driven by their talent, commitment to hard work, and achievement in impacting the economy, the society, and rewriting the narrative.
The award has taken its mandate seriously, consistently presenting 105 positive role models annually to young Nigerians. This edition will have 2-day activities that would focus on engaging youth in different industries, from women conferences to technology and innovation. This would further create a strong network for youth to support one another in the leadership space.
Persons eligible for nomination must have made a considerable impact within Nigeria and/or globally within the last year and must have easily accessible documentation of their achievements. The public is encouraged to nominate trailblazers from their communities in categories ranging from social activism, business, and professional service to media, and entertainment.
