Competition Stages

The first stage is participation in the competition by filling the application and submitting your proposal. You can attach photos or send a short video displaying how your proposal highlights the Libyan culture. You are free to choose the best means to express your proposal. You might present it as a story or you can write an overview of it. In this stage, we guarantee the safeguard of confidentiality and intellectual property of your proposal.

Participation in the competition begins on Sunday (7st July 2018) and ends on Sunday (21 July 2018)

This is the stage where proposals and presentations are evaluated upon shortlisting and ensuring they fulfil the criteria. Three events will be held in three cities in Libya. The evaluation stage is divided into two days. On the first day, contestants present their proposals and presentations to the panel of judges. On the next day, these presentations will be evaluated by the panel of judges and the best four proposals will be chosen from each city.

Cities and dates will be announced soon.

After four contestants have been chosen (four from each region), they will attend a training camp in Tunisia, for three consecutive days. This camp aims to provide an opportunity for contestants to learn modern skills in the areas of heritage, arts and innovation by conducting discussions, training, and cultural visits in Tunisia.

All contestants will make their presentations in the final ceremony on 30th August 2018 in front of a specialized international panel of judges who will choose the number one winner.
