African Culture Fund works in a transparent and rigorous way when selecting the board of examiners.
For any call for proposals, ACF uses a specific jury that changes with each call.
The jury is made up of experienced experts mastering the African cultural and creative sector and coming from different regions of the African continent and even its diaspora. They are assigned to evaluate applications and make decisions about funds allocation.
As a matter of principle, members of examiner board do not know each other before deliberation and enjoy autonomy and independence towards the Fund and its organs.
