February 16, 2023

Sports and Youth Affairs Cabinet Secretary Ababu Namwamba has launched the Talanta Hela National logo competition.

The Ministry announced the contest on Wednesday, February 15, during the unveiling of the Talanta Hela council and technical committees for arts and sports.

The competition is open to all Kenyan citizens who are interested in design and branding.

The winner will receive a cash prize of Sh 300,000, while the first and second runners-up will win Sh 200,000 and Sh100,000 respectively.

Additionally, the top 10 designers will join the government’s talent development program Talanta Hela.

Talanta Hela is a joint initiative between the national and all the county governments. It aims to promote the development of young talent in Kenya while also monetizing the talents of Kenyan creatives and sportsmen and women.

The program will start with football this year and then progress to the other forms of sports and arts.

It will also provide an online portal where people can share their talents and upload a two-minute clip onto the Talanta Hela platform.

The command centre at Kasarani will have a team of coaches and experts who will review the uploaded clips and select those that meet the required standards. The selected talents will then be progressed through the Kenya Academy of Sports and the Arts.

Some members of the Talanta Hela council and technical committees include Daniel ‘Churchill’ Ndambuki, Wahu, Carol Radull, Kate Actress, MC Jessy, Jimmi Gathu, Dennis Itumbi among others.
