The Delegation of the European Union with the African Union, in partnership with the African Union is organizing a contest for professional photographers residing in Africa.
The theme of the contest is “The beauty of Africa in all its forms” which is intended to promote a positive image of the continent and especially encourage creative photographic productions, original and personal of a modern Africa.
Five winners will be selected (one for each African region: North Africa, South, West, East, and Central) by an internationally renowned jury.
- 1 winner (first prize): 3,000 euros photographic equipment
- 4 Second Prizes: € 1,000 photographic equipment.
Images submitted by the 5 winners will be exhibited at the African Union Summit in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) in late January 2011. The five selected photographers will be invited to attend the event as well as a training workshop specifically on the sidelines of the exhibition. This event will also benefit from extensive media coverage.
This contest is open to professional photographers of African or European descent residing in Africa.
The contest entries must be sent from November 12 and before December 15, 2010.
