Win Up to $4,000 in Africa 2015 Agility Photo Competition

“Much of the world’s perception of Africa is outdated” – Geoffrey White, CEO of Agility Africa

Agility – a company committed to supporting local capacity in Africa – is looking for images that will open the eyes of the world to today’s vibrant, modern African reality. The company invites amateur and professional photographers to capture the hope, aspirations and confidence of a new generation of Africans for a chance to win up to $4,000.


Too frequently, the world reports only the bad news from Africa, when there is so much that is impressive about Africa. Today, seven out of 10 of the world’s fastest growing economies are in Africa. This photo competition is intended to highlight a dynamic market with opportunity. It calls for photographers to capture an Africa booming with tech-savvy, youthful consumers, fast-paced urbanization, and enormous long-term economic prospects.




Each category winner will receive a prize of US$2,000, and the grand prize winner will receive an additional $2,000. Winning photographs will also be featured in leading magazines and events.
