There is presently an increasing number of people taking photography from a hobby to a full time profession, especially amongst the younger generation. In light of this development, Africa Rising is launching a youth photo contest titled ‘Show us What Africa Rising Means to You.’
The competition is seeking pictures from young Sub-Saharan African photographers of all abilities, ages 18 – 30, capturing through their own lenses the opportunities and challenges facing Sub-Saharan Africa. All contestants—whether they use cameras or cell phones—are asked to submit original images that best define one of the following three themes.
- African Economic Development
- African Innovations
- African Challenges
- Snapshot category (low-resolution images)
- Photographer Category (high-resolution images)
In regards to prizes, two winners will be awarded a 3 day all expense paid trip to Maputo, Mozambique. The winners will also be rewarded with the opportunity to attend the #AfricaRising Conference and act as the IMF Youth Photographer,
All submissions must be made by April 25th, 2014 and the winner will be announced May 12, 2014. For more information, go to; http://africarising.strutta.com/#box-details.
