Africa-wide eco-themed photo contest
The photo contest “Picture This: Caring for the Earth” is jointly sponsored by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Olympus Corporation and the AFP Foundation.Its aim is to portray the people of Africa as stewards and protectors of their environment, and photos submitted for the contest must illustrate that theme. Special attention will be given to photos that take into account the role that women can and do play in that regard.
Photos submitted for the contest should also document people in Africa working to mitigate or prevent the effects of climate change or environmental degradation in general. They should be taken from a journalistic sensibility and tell a human story. They could profile a breaking news story, or an on-going project; they could also profile a particular African and her or his work, or a community and its work.
There are two categories: individual photos (up to 5 entries per person) and photo essay (one photo essay, 4-10 photos per essay, per person). You may only enter one category.
You must enter as either a professional or an amateur.
You must have lived in a country of Africa for at least the past 12 months.
