Are you an expert storyteller or do you see yourself as a novice who has a passion for the art?
Gondwana Collection Namibia partnered with Bank Windhoek and NMH in search of Namibia’s greatest storyteller. Storytelling is an age old tradition and the only special equipment needed is a great deal of imagination and the power of listening and speaking. With this competition we hope to reignite the flame of storytelling like the days of old. Stories are gifts we pass on to future generations and can never wear out but only be built upon.
The competition has two categories : The Small Spies for the age group 12 to 18 and the New / Expert Spies for the novices or experts. The theme is Namibia – Its myths, legends, history, life, people, fauna & flora but should be sensitive to the new spirit of Namibia.
Stories can be entered in any language and can be borrowed or original work. Stories should be accompanied by an entry form and sent to Gondwana’s offices in Windhoek. This can be in written form, emailed to email@example.com or recorded (voice or video) and delivered to the offices in Windhoek, c/o Nelson Mandela Avenue & Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. Alternatively you can make use of i.e Dropbox.
From the entries received before 1 September, finalists will be chosen to tell their story in front of a panel of judges on the 7th of September in Windhoek. A final group of finalists will be chosen to compete for the prize at the Finale on 30 September in Windhoek to win prizes of more than N$50 000.
This event will take place at the Gondwana Hall at the Windhoek show grounds.
