Tell Me About Award:
Calling all who love creativity! The AR/VR Africa Metathon is an expanded program built around our flagship hackathon – the AR/VR Africa Hackathon, and includes an XR training and bootcamp.

The AR/VR Africa Metathon is a bigger and grander event with three key components. Participants will have the opportunity to receive pre-hackathon training, build solutions in the hackathon, and the winning teams proceed to a bootcamp to develop their solutions into MVPs. It is a fun, fast-paced, challenging and yet highly rewarding event where everyone is welcome to learn, build with and develop in XR

Entrepreneurship

Who can apply?
All developers, programmers, UI/UX designers, artists, animators, storytellers, professionals and students.


How are Applicants Selected?
This year’s hackathon will be a hybrid event. The online hackathon will hold from November 21st – 25th, 2022 for participants in African countries without country partners. These participants will hack their solutions in a group known as ‘Africa Online’. The two-day offline hackathon will hold in 16 African countries (Nigeria, South Africa, Mozambique, Egypt, Kenya, Cameroon, Tunisia, Ghana, Rwanda, Senegal, Cote d’Ivoire, Namibia, Tanzania, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda and Ethiopia). Each country will have a country partner and team, who will oversee the planning and ensure the success of the Hackathon in their zone. The Hackathon will hold for 48 hours from 5 pm on 2nd December 2022 – 5 pm on 4th December 2022. After this, winners will be announced and prizes distributed at all levels and the 2022 Hackathon will come to an official close.

The first place winners from each country/country group will have an opportunity to join the AR/VR Africa Bootcamp where they will be educated on business by industry leaders, provided financial and technical support to build their MVPs and pitch their XR products or services to investors. The Bootcamp will commence on January 16th, 2023 and will run until April 3rd, 2023. The Demo day is scheduled for April 5th, 2023.
