Welcome to the official blog of The Future Awards. Here you will get the latest updates on the awards and the various activities of Future Nigeria. Stay locked and remember your future starts now.

An Overview of The Future (from The Future Website)
According to The Guardian, all the young people that matter in Nigeria can be found at the venue of “The Future...” Awards – this perfectly captures the essence of the event.

Amongst its recent accomplishments, The Future Project/The Future Awards was one of the projects from 25 countries around the world, selected for the US Governments International Visitors Leadership Programme in March/April 2009. It was also selected by the British Council under its World Changemakers Project.
 
Managed by a youth communications/youth resource agency called RedSTRAT, it celebrates young people between the ages of 18 and 31 with the awards – which are rigorously judged through a 4-stage 4-month process that involves a Board of Judges and an Independent Audit Committee
 
In an addressable population of about 57 million, approx. 31 million Nigerians are between the ages of 12 and 34. At the moment, Nigeria ’s unemployment rate hovers at 4.9%; from 15% in 1999/2000, the unemployment ratio which was 15% has only continued to drop. It goes without saying how frustrated this has made millions of youths. The Future Nigeria Project aims to correct this.
 
Organized by three young Nigerians below the age of 25, more than 75% of the events from anchoring, to sound, to decorations, stage etc - are completely handled, run and managed by young people under 30.
 
All of last years winners were below 31 include a young female farmer, Paralympics-certified medical doctor, under-20 magazine publishers, first African Olympic medalist, amongst others. Categories range from Business Owner of the Year, through Best Use of Advocacy to Best Use of Technology.
 
The next season (Season 5) kicks off on the 1st of October 2009 with an official launch – and will have several build-up events until the Awards on the 7th of February 2010.
 
This year, we are working with the Federal Ministry of Youth, the British Council, the Fate Foundation, the After Graduate Development Centre (AGDC) and the Federal Ministry of Information.
