Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition
AFD Photo Contest

AFD Photo Contest

The world is changing. Destinies are inextricably intertwined in the face of the challenges for the future of the planet. Photographers, as witnesses of these major changes, are invaluable messengers and their essential work must be strongly encouraged and disseminated. It is for this reason that AFD has a longstanding history with photography, marked by some wonderful collaborations.

One of them started in 2012, with the launch of the first AFD Photography Prize, open exclusively to professional photographers. By associating prestigious names from the media and photography, AFD’s aim is to raise the awareness of an ever-increasing public about development issues and share this objective of actively working to achieve a more just and more sustainable world.
