The 5th edition of the Africa 35.35 Awards which rewards 35 young personalities under 35 from Africa and the African diaspora who have exceptional achievements in their communities has just launched a call for nominations open until August 31, 2020.
The Association 3535, the initiator of the awards, would like to honor thirty-five talents under the thirty-five years old: start-up bosses, innovators, researchers but also artists, actors in the field literary or business executives, a whole ambitious young guard who represents the African leaders of today and tomorrow.

The 2020 edition will see the laureates receive their trophies in their respective countries due to the global health crisis and a virtual awards ceremony take place.
