Dare Academy Applications for 2018 officially closed on Monday 23 April at 11.59pm, with 17 teams and nearly 100 students vying for a place in this year’s competition.
Five teams were working right up until the wire to get their applications in, with teams submitting at 11.48pm, 11.53pm, 11.54pm, 11.55pm and 11.58pm – just 1 minute before the deadline!
All applications are now being submitted to the competition judges who face the unenviable task of deciding of narrowing down a shortlist which is scheduled to be announced on Friday 4 May. Interviews and game pitches with the judges are scheduled to take place on Thursday 17 May.
The judges will thereafter be locked in talks to decide who the final six teams will be making the trip to EGX in September.
Good luck to all Dare Academy teams in their application, please keep in touch with Dare Academy on Facebook and Twitter.
