Hi @everybody So the #ThisIsNigeria competition was organised in conjunction with The Academic Summit (TAS). TAS is an annual event that holds in the University of Lagos, the major aim of the event is to bridge the gap between the classroom and the real media world. We bring different media professionals to come speak to and educate the participants of the event.

The theme for this year’s event is “Create. Glocalize” We want to focus on how we can make our Nigerian brands, products, services etc global standard without losing touch of our originality, our “Nigerianness”

Over the next couple of days I would be posting details of the speakers and the event here.

Is the winner to be judged with number of engagements on their story or just number of likes?

I’m asking for a friend :wink:

It’s going to be judged by both among other things. The site automatically calculates which posts are doing well and ranks them as top stories. So it’s the top 3 stories that will win.
