Frontline Africa Advisory


Frontline Africa Advisory (FAA) is currently running a writing competition that is targeting South African young graduates.  They may have graduated from any university in the world, as long as they are South African nationals and/ or legal residents they will be eligible to enter the competition.

About the Competition

The aim of the competition is to involve the youth in conversations about political and economic developments in South Africa, Africa and beyond. This is founded on our belief that the youth should not only read about, but should be enmeshed, in developments in the national and global economic and body politic.

A topic will be allocated for contestants on which to write an article. The number of words, date and time of submission will be shared with the contestants via our social media pages.

Who can enter? South African unemployed graduates who are not older than 35 years of age on the day of entry can enter the competition.

Why graduates? This is part of FAA’s contribution to efforts aimed at assisting graduates transition from university to the world of work.
