Enter the Agility Africa Photo Competition 2017 (Win up to $4,000)

Deadline: September 1, 2017

The story of today’s Africa – young, growing, urbanizing, and tech-savvy – needs to be told. As a company committed to supporting local capacity in Africa, Agility wants to capture the hope, aspirations and confidence of a new generation of Africans and the continent that they are rapidly reshaping. They are looking for images that will open the eyes of the world to today’s vibrant, modern African reality. The Agility Africa Photo Competition 2017 is an invitation to professional and amateur photographers to capture the vibrant, modern African reality and show the world that Africa is realizing its potential.

Photos can be sent in the following categories of the competition:

  • Industry: Africa’s transformation is being driven by growth and modernization in energy, manufacturing, agriculture, logistics and transportation and consumer goods. They are seeking photos that illustrate the strides Africa is making in productivity, commerce, consumer demand and investment;
  • Technology: Africa’s transformation has been accelerated by technology that gives its citizens the ability to connect to one another and the world as never before. They seek photos that show how people use technology to improve their lives or that showcase Africa’s technological innovation;
  • Cities: Africa’s political and commercial capitals are becoming global mega-cities as the continent urbanizes at a historic pace. More than 40% of Africans now live in cities. They are looking for photos that capture stories of urban life across Africa.


  • The winning photo in each of the three categories will receive a USD 2,000 cash prize.
  • The grand prize winner will receive an additional $2,000 cash prize.
