Bellafricana ACE Awards 2017

Bellafricana African Creative Exhibition and Awards aims to laud the creative works of Nigerians (Africans), which makes open competition affordable and accessible. In turn, this will encourage more businesses to look inwards and create more globally acceptable brands.

Bellafricana is an initiative with a focus on Made-in-Nigeria (Africa) Non-oil products development where customers and suppliers engage and transact to bridge the buyer-seller gap and create a wider outreach for Nigerian (African) products locally & globally.

Micro, small and medium-size businesses nationwide produce a great deal of outstanding products, yet these creative business owners aren’t encouraged to innovate and create more.

Bellafricana has enabled creative businesses a platform to receive the recognition they have long deserved. This Annual African Creative Exhibition and Award (termed Bellafricana ACE Awards) competition endorsed by the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC), Nigerian-British Chamber of Commerce (NBCC), Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), Nigerian-American Chamber of Commerce (NACC), Nigeria-Britain Association, will hereby offer participants a unique opportunity to showcase their talents and to have their work judged by consumers and experts.
