Google Drive Submission:

  • Prepare Your Video: Ensure your pitch video meets all guidelines—no longer than 2 minutes, clearly articulates the impact of your project, and showcases your innovation.

  • Upload to Google Drive: Save your video to Google Drive. Ensure that the sharing settings allow anyone with the link to view it.

  • Submit Your Link: We will provide a Pitch Video Submission Form where you will need to submit the link to your video stored in Google Drive. This form ensures we collect all necessary information alongside your video link.

Social Media Sharing:

  • Share Publicly: Post your video on your preferred social media platforms.

  • Tag Us: Use our official handle and designated hashtags (#bomaprizeforafrica, #bp4africa #bomaprizecontestant) when you share your video. This increases your visibility and engages the wider community with your innovative idea.

  • Interact and Engage: Encourage friends, family, and followers to view, like, and share your video. This not only spreads your idea but also garners public support and interest.

YouTube Upload:

  • Our Upload: The videos stored on Google Drive will be collected by our team and uploaded to our official YouTube channel. This allows your pitch to reach a broader audience, including potential investors, industry experts, and supporters worldwide. Consequently, all the videos will be further uploaded to the Voting Management System.

Why This Method?

This dual approach of Google Drive and social media sharing is designed to maximize the exposure of your innovative projects while ensuring that all submissions are handled securely and efficiently. It provides a streamlined process for us to manage submissions while allowing you to engage your network and the public effectively.
