The 12-day celebration of Indian and African culture, music and art, has launched in Johannesburg, and the exciting cultural bonanza promises to be an event for the ages with over 206,000 facebookers eagerly following and thousands of competitors mixing it up in a competition that will dazzle with class.

With an eclectic blend of cinema, music, art and photography exhibitions, entrepreneurs and bloggers workshops and panel discussions the 12-day Indiafrica Festival 2013 began here Monday aiming to reach out to the youth of South Africa.

The festival will mark the completion of the "Indiafrica: A Shared Future" programme's second edition of competitions. With a Facebook community of over 206,000, the programme has seen over 5,000 young people from 36 African countries and India participate in its competitions.

Four teams each from Africa and India will compete for two grand prizes - all expenses paid trips for one African and one Indian winner to Davos in January 2014 during the World Economic Forum's annual meeting to interact with global business leaders, investors and media at the proposed Indiafrica Youth Hub in Davos.
