Jobberman/Mastercard Foundation 2023 Short Film Competition (Up to N2 Million)

This competition, launched in collaboration with the MasterCard Foundation, is a platform for young Nigerian content creators to blend creativity and social consciousness through a captivating short film. Here’s a comprehensive guide to what the competition entails, the incredible prizes, and how you can enter.

The competition is a part of the Young Africa Works strategy by the MasterCard Foundation, aiming to create economic opportunities for 10 million young Nigerians, particularly women. This initiative targets the creative sector and digital economy, giving a voice to those who wish to articulate the challenges of unemployment in Nigeria.

Participants are required to create a 3-5 minute short film that encapsulates key findings from Jobberman’s “How Young People Survive without Jobs” report, casting light on the critical reality of Nigeria’s unemployed youth.

Your short film can be a comedy, documentary, or any other scripted format, with real or fictional characters. It must emphasise the following key issues:

  • Less than 1% of unemployed youths receive support from government and religious organisations.
  • 60% of unemployed youths in the Northeast have been without work for at least three years.

These themes must be woven into your narrative, offering a masterful blend of entertainment and social consciousness.
