The winners each receive a R42 000 ( about $3,000 USD) cash prize and “a tailor-made incubation programme to accelerate their project development. This includes mentorship by French and sub-Saharan creative industries experts, a residence period in France with a digital cluster/hub, and participation at industry events in France and/or in Sub-Saharan Africa.” What a novel idea!
