  • Accra, Ghana
  • Kigali, Rwanda
  • Nairobi, Kenya

Type: Fellowship

Eligibility: We are looking for originals, applicants cut from that unique creative ilk that defines an amazing creative. We are not looking for ordinary people. Instead we want content creators and storytellers that are non-conformists who are laser focused on making the authentic yet fantastic stories that Africa deserves, stories that the world will use as the lenses with which the real Africa is viewed. We are looking for photographers, videographers, writers, animators, graphic artists, storytellers. We are looking for those young, hungry creatives that are ready to take their creative aspirations to the next level

Selection Criteria: Amplify applicants should be open to challenging defaults, demonstrate resilience, and embody a multitude of viewpoints. Fellow characteristics we like include rigor, ownership, vision, grit, curiosity and teamwork. In addition to tangible evidence of progress in their craft, every potential Amplify should be able to show their passion for their country and Africa.

Selection Process: The Amplify II Fellows will be selected by the aKoma crew. We select Fellows based on their creative pursuits so far, content creation aspirations, alignment with Amplify’s vision, and other factors. We are interested in the possible range and impact of the potential Fellow’s work, the diversity of their creative work, and the ability to take full advantage of the opportunities presented by Amplify

This is a very competitive program. For some context on how tough the competition is, we received over 1,000 applications for the first cohort of 25 fellows in 2016

Yes, you have to really stand out.
