Owing to its tremendous success in 2012; The Future Awards Central Working Committee have announced that The Future Awards Online Business Master Class will hold a second edition on June 28 in Lagos, Nigeria.

The Online Master Class 2013 is part of the pre-awards activities for The Future Awards, Season 8 and would be held in partnership with an human developmental online company, Information Nigeria.

The Master Class is aimed at young people who want to run online media businesses in Nigeria and are looking for practical steps and guidelines. The event would be a full day interactive session that would feature the facilitators sharing knowledge and information about running a media business in Nigeria; emphasizing the opportunities, challenges, and strategies, especially in the peculiar Nigerian environment.

According to Chude Jideonwo, the executive director of The Future Project, “the online media has become a major source of information for many Nigerians and has over the last few years become a force to reckon with.

“Young people who seek to tap into this media to build careers to influence conversations, inform, and entertain can now acquire the needed skills to build a reputable – and most importantly, profitable – new media brand,” he said.

Passionate about empowering young people, Jideonwo said: “there would be no application fee this year as we, The Future Project and Information Nigeria want to ensure that those who are zealous about this are those who attend.”

Facilitators at the Master Class 2013 include: Noble Igwe, Publisher,; Editi Ediong, CEO, Anakle; Ediong Umoh, Curator, NigeriaNewsDesk and Linda Ikeji, Creator and Editor, Linda Ikeji Blog.

The Master Class is organized as part of The Future Project; a social enterprise/change communications firm affiliated to Red Media Africa that is set up based on a strong, practical commitment to human and capital development, especially in Nigeria and Information Nigeria, a fast growing online portal.
