Nollywood Icon Search was founded in 2013 by UN Entertainment and backed by top Nollywood stars. The reality series Nollywood Icon search will pit aspiring undergraduates from several tertiary institutions in Nigeria against one another in a radical competition that seeks to produce Nigeria’s next Nollywood Icon.
“In every film industry, the key to resounding success is not just about possessing the talent, but is also in one’s ability to identify and parley with the right environment in order to engineer adequate exposure. As such, this competition which also doubles as a reality show is an exceptional platform where contestants are opportuned to meet and showcase their acting skills to a team of judges comprised of 3 A-list Nollywood celebrities who have made indelible marks in the Nigerian film and television industry.
Not only will this hunt find talented and aspiring movie acts, but it is also billed to launch the careers of 20 tertiary undergraduates from every proposed city into the limelight. The eventual winners of Nollywood Icon Search from each city will have the opportunity of featuring alongside veteran colleagues in a star-studded Nollywood movie which will be screened in cinemas, festivals, cable & terrestrial television, internet, and DVD across the world.”
