Jobberman/Mastercard Foundation 2023 Short Film Competition
The Jobberman/Mastercard Foundation 2023 Short Film Competition is currently open for creative individuals. In partnership with the MasterCard Foundation, this competition offers a space for young Nigerian content creators to merge their imagination with social awareness in an impactful short film. Here’s a complete rundown of what the competition involves, the exciting rewards, and how you can join.
The competition, valued at up to N2 million, is aligned with the MasterCard Foundation’s Young Africa Works strategy. This strategy focuses on generating economic prospects for 10 million Nigerian youth, with a special emphasis on women. This initiative zooms in on the creative domain and the digital economy, providing a platform for those who want to express the struggles of unemployment in Nigeria.
Create a 3-5 minute short film that captures the essence of Jobberman’s “How Young People Survive without Jobs” report. Your film should shed light on the pressing reality faced by unemployed Nigerian youth. You can choose any creative style – comedy, documentary, or scripted story – with real or fictional characters. Make sure your film highlights these focal points:
- Government and religious groups support less than 1% of jobless youths.
- In the Northeast, 60% of unemployed youths endure joblessness for over three years.
- Weave these themes into your storytelling to create an engaging yet socially conscious narrative.
