Welcome to the Maxim Festival website.
There are four main sections to the site:

1. Festival Page

  • Showcasing everything that is going to happen during the festival. All of the evening events, the daily festival programme, plus you can get more insight on the topics that will be covered during THE SUMMIT DAY and all of the local and global key note speakers.
  • It is important that you familiarize yourself with the T’s AND C’s in this section.

2. Awards Page

  • Probably the most exciting section. Here you can enter your work through following the easy steps in START MY ENTRY.
  • You can see what TIP’s to follow to increase your chances of winning, as well as get some insight into the judges.
  • Here you should read all of the IMPORTANT INFORMATION and make sure you understand all of the SUB-CATEGORY DEFINITIONS.

3. Academy Page

  • This takes you through what the different academies are, what they will cover and who should attend which academy.
  • There are academies for all levels, from student / junior to CEO / business owner.

4. Inspiration Page

  • One of our goals is to become a platform for inspiration throughout the year. Our archive section will allow you to search and view all of the entries and past winners.
  • If you have purchased an APPRENTICE PACKAGE you will be able to download the course notes.

With such amazing growth across our continent, the theme for our first festival will be BETTER | FASTER.

It is not often that you can become part of something, which if done right, could change the course of the communications industry in Africa. It takes courage to start something new and it takes courage to support and believe in something new.

The main objective of this festival is to transfer skills, inspire all communication industry specialists at all levels and reward people for their hard work.

We are going to select a few juniors as volunteers to help out behind the scenes, giving them some insight into the judging process. If you are keen – tick the “want to volunteer” box below or when you register as a user.

We hope that your experience throughout the festival will motivate you to do more and go further! Be BETTER | Be FASTER

But the most important thing for us is that you enjoy yourself whilst celebrating Africa’s first Maxim festival!
