Digital Lab Africa awards Africa’s top digital arts innovators

The 5th Digital Lab Africa awards will celebrate top African digital arts innovators at the Fakugesi Digital Arts Festival on 18 October, 2021 at 6pm GMT (Paris/Johannesburg), 5pm WAT (Lagos), 7pm EAT (Kampala, Nairobi).

Digital Lab Africa, which is in its 5th year, is an incubation hub for emerging Digital Arts innovators in animation, video games, extended reality (AR, VR) on the continent.  Emerging digital arts talents are offered a foundation to fast track their project development and are supported by the DLA creative industries ecosystems in the countries of Africa, France and the world.

 Digital Lab Africa is aimed at celebrating the digital arts innovators who have been selected as part of this year’s incubation programme. The winners were chosen from more than 140 applications from 30 African countries. The winners were selected based on their artistic, technical and financial criteria in the following five key categories: music, immersive realities, video games, animation and digital art

The French Embassy in Nigeria is our special supporting partner for this Digital Lab Africa 2021 event highlighting their support for Nigerian digital creatives.

Eduardo Cachucho, DLA Programme Manager Says, “The Digital Lab Africa (DLA) remains one of the most exciting opportunities for digital creatives in the countries of Africa. Now in its fifth year, the DLA has an alumni group of 48 recipients of incubation, showcasing the best minds and projects in digital from across the continent. This year’s seven projects from five countries range from an AR museum showcasing Africa’s rich cultural heritage to a video game of an intrepid businesswoman from Lagos delivering food - there’s something for a curious mind in each project. We are also looking forward to sharing more about our DLA 2022 opportunities which will launch in February 2022.”

The DLA Awards event on the 18th of October will bring to the forefront inspirational and insightful stories from diverse emerging African digital artists. Our guest speakers are Senegalese curator and cultural Advisor Delphine Buysse and Nigeria’s Hugo Obi, founder of gaming studio Maliyo Games will share their insights on the state of digital creativity on the continent.

  1. My name is Natasha Wilson. I am here to make a review about how Dr Patrick helped me in fixing my marriage and also to those out there seeking for help and advice on how to save your broken marriage or relationship, few months ago I was having issues with my husband I noticed he has been having an affair with another young lady in his place of work I confronted him but he got angry and say to my face that it’s true, as if that was not enough he went ahead by telling me he doesn’t love me anymore that he wanted a divorce I was to devastated and confused, I pleaded with him that I don’t want a divorce but he insisted, before then I had heard about Dr Patrick while browsing on the internet how he use to help people with broken marriages and relationships, I gave it a thought and I decided to contact him, he promise to put a smile on my face again, I followed his instructions and after 3days I was so surprised to see my husband kneeling before me and apologizing for what he had said about the divorce, this is something I never expected, I thank Dr Patrick for what he has done for me, now am living happily with my husband and he has stopped seeing the other woman. Please if you are having issues like this I advise you to contact Dr Patrick he can help you as well. You can contact him on his Email or on his whatsapp number +1 662 493 2087 this is his Facebook page
