    The story of today’s Africa – young, growing, urbanising, 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.

    There are three categories:

    • Industry
    • Technology
    • Cities


    Photos must be taken in Africa and must be high-resolution, JPG or PNG format, at least 1,600 pixels wide or tall, and the file size must be at least 1 MB. Only minor digital editing, colour correction, and cropping of the photo are allowed.

    The contest will involve two rounds 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.

    There is no limit on the number of entries per person.

    There is no entry fee.

    Eligibility


    Open worldwide to professional and amateur photographers 18 years of age and older.

    Prize


    Each category winner will receive a prize of 2,000 USD, and the grand prize winner will receive an additional 2,000 USD.

    Sponsor may also offer a Viewer's Choice award in the future, where people can independently choose their favourite photo.
