Mo Ibrahim Foundation non-grant making organisation that focuses on the critical importance of leadership and governance in Africa has launched a Snapping Cities Photography Competition.
The competition comes ahead of the Foundation’s annual Governance Weekend on 21-23 November in Accra, Ghana, during which the discussion forum will focus on the theme of “African Cities”.
Photographers of all abilities and ages are called upon to share their urban experience and capture inspiring ways in which cities are adapting to new lifestyles.
The competition will run until 10 October 2014, with submissions made to the Foundation’s website. The top three photographs will be awarded prizes of US$500, US$200 and US$100 respectively.
A selection of the best photographs will also be displayed at the Governance Weekend, where they will serve as inspiration and subject of discussion for prominent African political and business leaders, representatives from civil society, multilateral and regional institutions as well as Africa’s major international partners.
