Here’s how it works:

The competition will begin on 9 October and run until 23 October, which you’ll be able to enter right here. On October 30, eight finalists will be chosen to represent South Africa’s best aspiring content creators, and they’ll receive further training from experienced personalities Sam “Tech Girl” Wright and Dangerous Dave from Super2Bit. Training starts on 1 November and will be a combination of technical, writing and social skills allowing the finalists to develop great content, build a fan base and grow their own brand’s social media following.
