In recent years, art-creating AI has pushed the boundaries of how we define art. This competition challenges the African AI & Data Science community on Zindi to create original artwork and music track(s) using AI.

The challenge is to create an original piece of artwork or music that leverages AI. There will be one winner for each category (visual art & music) and winners must be citizens of an African country and must be living in Africa.

Awards will be presented to the winner at the exclusive AI Expo Africa VIP event on the opening night of AI Expo Africa in Cape Town South Africa on 3 September 2019 – with the music track(s) being played during the event and art work on display. Both works will be auctioned during the exclusive networking / drinks reception event 5 September with proceeds going (50%) to the artist and (50%) to the event charity “Starting Chance.”

This competition is sponsored by The AI Media Group, creators of AI Expo Africa, and Cortex Ventures, Africa’s first AI only focused VC company.
