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. We are looking for images that will open the eyes of the world to today’s vibrant, modern African reality.
- Photos will be judged on: 1) Compatibility with the theme of a modern, hopeful Africa; 2) Creativity and photographic quality; and 3) Impact and inspiration.
- The contest will involve two round(s) of judging. In the first round, a panel of judges will shortlist 30 photos per category. In the second round, a different panel of judges will select the winning photo per category. No employee of Sponsor will sit on the final judging panel.
- Sponsor may also offer a “viewer’s choice” award in the future, where people can independently choose their favourite photo.
