Bellafricana ACE Awards 2017: Complete List of Nominees

The complete list of Bellafricana ACE Awards nominees have been released and it is with great pleasure to see that well deserving brands made it on…

Adding value and creating impact is a noble cause that should be awarded. This by no means undermines or belittles the efforts of the brands that weren’t nominated, far from it.

The Bellafricana ACE Awards 2017 is the first of it’s kind and we have plans to stay while making it better each year.

The event is sponsored by the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) and proudly endorsed by the Nigerian-British Chamber of Commerce (NBCC), Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Nigerian-American Chamber of Commerce (NACC) and Nigeria-Britain Association.

While attendance to the event is FREE, coming for the dinner attracts a cost of ₦20,000  and a 25% discount if you are purchasing tickets for two or more.

Believe me, if it were up to Bellafricana, everyone would be a nominee and a winner, but the categories were thrown out to the public to nominate accordingly. As mentioned prior, the ACE awards is set to be an annual event. It will not be a one off. So if your name is not on the list this year, make sure it gets on next year.

The nominees will be judged based on packaging, quality, content and much more. Our panel is all set to judge and assess. Their identities will not be revealed to ensure a free and fair awardee selection, but they will consist of expert representatives from various chambers of commerce and business councils.

Bellafricana is not only aiming to award innovation and creativity, she is also trying to train and assist SMEs Nationwide to grow and be better than they are. The goal of this ACE Awards is to encourage more talents in Nigeria to look inwards, be original and create more globally acceptable brands.
