Gifted Africa Awards Galore

The Gifted Africa Awards Galore is set for 5th November, 2017.

It must be pointed out that Gifted Africa Awards is not the same as the usual “see by eye” or “financially inclined” Talent Awards by various bodies pretending to know about talent yet they have neither resources nor abilities to conduct a Gift and Talent Assessment in the first place, much as they may sometimes be right on individual talents.

The Gifted Africa Awards 2017 will, for the first time, be based on scientifically sustainable methods hence professionally backed. The federation, having the tools and internationally acclaimed methods will declare “Real Talent” and “Real Giftedness”, while rewarding Africa’s real gifts instead of mere spots of talents.

Online applications open 1st July 2017 and will close 31st August 2017. Candidates should prepare brief biography of themselves citing challenges while trying to understand and use their talents or gifts. It should further have breakthroughs and evidences (pictorial) of the successes and references to YouTube.
