The call for submissions was announced at the DXD event on the 19th of February at the Zing Bar in the dusitD2 hotel at 14 Riverside.

The event, which was produced by UP Magazine in partnership with Airtel Kenya andCiroc Vodka, inaugurated a new era of design and disruptive thinking in Nairobi.

UP Magazine Director Rand Pearson kicked off the ceremony with a call to recognise how disruptive thinking is changing the way we interact with our city for the better.

“We are here to celebrate the ones who have dared to envision something smart and cool that makes a difference,”

The DXD event was the first of a series of monthly get-togethers which will aim to highlight more Nairobian disruptors.
