Submit your media to AYV Awards Program–before 18 April


18th April is the closing date

There are only 4 more days for educators in South Africa to submit youth-produced media to the Adobe Youth Voices Aspire Awards. All media must be submitted online through the Adobe Youth Voices Awards site –

Who can enter

Please help to spread the word to educators in your countries – the competition is open to all.  If the educators are part of your official AYV network program, please be sure they login with the account they created as part of the iEARN AYV network (they would have registered using the grantee code: iearn).  If they are not part of your iEARN/AYV training program, they can still submit work on behalf of their students, but would do so by registering as a new user without the code.

Please note that the submission guidelines can be found at
