In 2020 Fak’ugesi Festival will power up the resolution of our African Digital Creativity to ignite imaginations, hardwire local talent, transform digital experiences and secure future livelihoods beyond the face to face.
This year we explore the power of the smallest unit, the pixel, to shape the reality we experience, bridge divides and bring focus to our digital creativity. Bringing power to the Pixel, we up Africa’s resolution. #POWERTOTHEPIXEL
This is a first call to action to the African digital creative community! The annual poster illustration competition for digital artists across the continent.
Our annual poster competition is open to all African illustrators. Design an illustrated poster that brings to life this year’s theme ‘Power to the Pixel’. Bring power to your afro-futurist vision and our our iconic use of hands. We invite you to join the list of extraordinary creatives who have brought the vision of the festival alive: Sindiso Nyoni in 2017 – @sindiso, Sonwabo Valashiya in 2018 – @blackvillagekid, Liegh Le Roux in 2019 – @leighleroux who’s work was digital augmented by poetess Miss Emmah @emmah_mabye.
The Winning Poster becomes the featured image for 2020, and scores a cash prize. Runners up get exposure through a feature article, profiling and exhibition of entries.
