Mo Ibrahim Foundation “Snapping Cities” Photography Competition 2014

Mo Ibrahim Foundation “Snapping Cities” Photography Competition 2014

Deadline: October 10, 2014

The Mo Ibrahim Foundation invites interested individuals to participate in the “Snapping Cities” photography competition. Snapping Cities is an opportunity for photographers of all abilities and ages, to capture through their own lenses, urban life in Africa. The Mo Ibrahim Foundation (MIF) is seeking images that capture inspiring ways of tackling urban challenges in African cities. This may be modern innovation or a basic adaptation of day-to-day life.

The theme is open to your personal interpretation but we’re looking for beautiful, inspiring and original photographs. A selection of the best photographs will be displayed at the 2014 Ibrahim Forum on African Cities in Accra, Ghana, in November, with prizes for the top three entries.
