Mo Ibrahim Foundation, a Kabissa member, has announced a photo competition on the theme of African Cities - see below for the announcement I received by email today. If you decide to submit, show us your photos in the comments below as well!
The Mo Ibrahim Foundation is to hold its flagship, high-level Annual Governance Weekend from the 21-23 November 2014 in Accra, Ghana. The focus of the weekend will be the Ibrahim Forum. The theme of the discussions is “African Cities”.
It is projected that Africa will enter its ‘urban age’ by 2035 when 50% of its population will live in urban areas. The 2014 Ibrahim Forum will explore innovation and solutions crucial to unlocking the potential of urban centres to act as engines of sustainable and equitable growth and development.
In the build up to the Forum, MIF is inviting anyone interested in this issue to contribute to the broader discussions by participating in our “Snapping Cities” competition. We encourage you to enter and also share with your networks.
Snapping Cities Photo Competition
Snapping Cities is an opportunity for photographers of all abilities and ages, to capture through their own lenses, urban life in Africa. 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: first prize of US$500, second prize of US$200 and third prize of US$100.
