Getlit Africa unveils ‘Act Out A Scene’


Africa’s fast-growing arts resources project, Getlit Africa, which has been at the forefront of promoting all-encompassing opportunities in the arts, has unveiled a new contest, Act Out A Scene.

‘Act Out A Scene’, which will run from August 15 till October 14 is a contest designed to stimulate the interest of Africans in literature and performance arts.

According to Getlit Africa, participation in the competition is free and only requires prospective participants to interpret a scene in any book of their choice by acting it out in a one-minute video, which will be shared on their Instagram pages, tagging GetlitAfrica and possibly the author of the book.

The Creative Director of Getlit Africa, Olawale Oluwadahunsi, said the Africa-wide initiative is positioned to reinvent literary appreciation amongst Africans in line with modern realities.

Act Out A Scene is a simple process. Submit a one-minute video acting out a scene in any book of your choice. Post your entry on your page and tag GetlitAfrica as collaborator. Do not use video from another competition for this same contest. Quote and tag the author of the book you are acting a scene from. The video which could be a monologue or dialogue must be original, devoid of offensive content and free from any form of sound, music or instrumentals. We don’t want any sound that could aid one’s delivery. The rules of the contest are well-explained on our page. The entries will be assessed by our judges and the ultimate winners will be recognised and rewarded.”

Winners (grand prize and viewers’ choice) of the contest will be announced on October 14, 2023.
