The Future Awards Africa 2013 Announces Shortlist For All Categories Of The Awards

Posted in: , , ,

The Future Awards Africa 2013 has just announced the shortlist for all categories of the Awards. Chude Jideonwo of The Future Project, organizers the awards, says of the nomination process - which included both a board of judges and an independent Audit Committee- "there was a period of intense research and verification of nominees before the final selection process."

Members of the Independent Audit Committee include the chief executive of EbonyLife TV, Mo Abudu; politician Jimi Agbaje; Stanbic IBTC director Yemi Osindero; and LEAP Africa founder Ndidi Nwuneli amongst others. All the categories, except the Young Media Entrepreneur and Young Person of the Year Africa Prize have three nominees each.

Chude Jideonwo added that, "the vetting process has been daunting, and the intense scrutiny that successful nominees have gone through has been illuminating" for the awards organizers and the nominees. A "combination of structure, quantifiable measures of success and impact" was used in selecting the most inspiring nominees who are thus judged worthy to rise to the top.
