Nairobi and Lagos might be a bit far but it might be something worth doing. Here’s more details:

We’re in the middle of the TED Africa Idea Search — a talent search for the next great TEDGlobal speaker. Could it be you?

We’re thrilled to announce that applications are open for two new events in Africa: TEDLagos and TEDNairobi 2017 Idea Search!

Here are just a few speakers who were discovered during past talent searches — and who’ve seen more than a million views on their great ideas:

Here’s how to enter the TED Africa Idea Search: Complete the entry form and make a 1-minute video. Your 1-minute video can and should be very simple: Just explain your idea in a few sentences, and give us a flavor of how you’d present it.

Would you like to get an email of tips for making a great audition video? Sign up here.
Applications will close on Friday, December 16 at 6pm Lagos time / 8pm Nairobi time. We encourage local applicants to Lagos and Nairobi. Please choose only one event to apply to — applying to both events will not increase your chances of being selected to speak.
We can’t wait to hear your idea!
