The Star (Kenya)
Innovation shapes the world. Can you tackle the world's 'to-do' list?
Enter your brightest innovations (solutions) to one of these Global Goals challenges: 'Reduce Inequalities', 'Young Entrepreneurs', or 'Life on Land'.
It takes just one idea to change the world. And it could be yours!
According to Global Goal 10 'Reduced Inequalities', too much of the world’s wealth is held by a very small group of people, leading to discrimination against the majority. How can we make equality and prosperity available to everyone? How can we make every individual self-sufficient?
According to Global Goal 15 'Life on Land', a flourishing life on the land is key to our life and survival on this planet. We have caused severe damage to it through deforestation, loss of natural habitats and land degradation. How can we use our ecosystems in a sustainable way? How can we preserve our biodiversity for future generations?
Two-thirds of Africa’s young people are unemployed or vulnerably employed. While
10-12 million youths enter the workforce each year, only 3 million formal jobs are created annually. Have you considered entrepreneurship as a career option? Can you generate your own job which you care passionately about?
The prizes include:
Winners receive a MASK Awards trophy and/or a cash prize totalling 300,000Ksh ($3,000), and/or a representation on MASK Art with participation in our national and international exhibitions.
Innovation shapes the world, but it begins with art.
Art teaches us to imagine and connect. When art flourishes creativity and innovation thrive.
Enter your best works of art on any theme and in any medium: paintings, drawings, prints, graffiti, sculpture, digital, film, photography, performance & more...
