Agility, one of the world’s leading providers of integrated logistics, has launched a global photo competition that aims to highlight the success of emerging Africa and reflect its increasing progress. The story of today’s Africa (young, growing, urbanizing, and tech-savvy) needs to be told. This is why Agility wants to capture the hope, aspirations and confidence of a new generation of Africans and the continent that they are rapidly reshaping with #Africa2015.
In order to do this, images/photos that will open the eyes of the world to today’s vibrant, modern African reality will be needed to showcase the developments in Africa. Who else can take this images/photos except for photographers. This is why Agility invite both professional and amateur photographers (18 years of age and older) to compete for a chance to win up to $4,000 in the Agility photography competition.
The photos/images to be submitted must highlight the successes of Africa, elements that show how we’ve developed and are just as tech-savvy and fast paced as any other continent. In essence, photos/images should show the positive side to Africa thereby allowing international audiences to see the beauty that Africa holds.
There are three (3) categories in which photos/images can be entered/submitted into. These are
You will need to submit a photo/image into any or all of the three categories. There are beautiful cities in Africa you can capture. There are developed industries in Africa you can highlight in a picture. There are technology breakthroughs you can also show in your photo and have them submitted for the competition.
Agility will award a $2,000 cash prize to the winner of each category, as well as a $4,000 grand cash prize to the photographer who shoots the overall winning image that best captures the development and growth across Africa. Also, the winning photographs will be shown on a CNBC Africa telecast and published in Forbes Africa.
