Social Media Awards Africa Unveiling In Pictures

Earlier this week Development Dairies unveiled the Social Media Awards Africa (SMAA), a first of its kind continental initiative to recognize and celebrate excellence, creativity and impact of social media on human socio-economic development – through its tools and platforms, by individuals and organizations across the continent. The SMAA features 4 categories and 15 awards targeted at personalities, platforms, institutions and indigenous initiatives that have demonstrated the aforementioned criteria in digital and social media practice within Africa.

I was invited as a panelist at the event alongside other creative industry stakeholders. For those that couldn't attend, I've posted some pictures below just for you. Enjoy :)

P.s - Nominations are now open, please  feel free to nominate (Till October 27 2014) yourself, your brand or those you feel are deserving of the award categories. To find out more about the project, visit
