Send us an original short video and run the chance to win up to 100K NGN!

“ET… ACTION !” is a creative response to Covid time by the French Cultural Network in Nigeria. The call for project is open to any arts and culture domain, so your project can literally take any form: a short dance video, a live digital theatre/poetry performance, a music video clip, an art tutorial, a short novel or film including animation. It can be performed in any language… the possibilities have no boundaries but their length: 1 to 3 minutes tops!

Originality will be a key factor in the selection process, so give room to your craziest ideas… while respecting all measures of social distancing as decreed by the Nigerian authorities.

Alliance française Lagos and Institut français du Nigéria will share 3 videos every week until the end of the project (12 June 2020). If your video is selected and posted, you will receive 20K NGN!
