A positive picture of Africa

[ June 1, 2015   //   ]

Developing world logistics specialist Agility is holding a global photo competition to highlight the success of emerging Africa.
The competition seeks to highlight the often unreported side of the continent and calls for photographers to capture an Africa booming with tech-savvy, youthful consumers, fast-paced urbanization, and enormous long-term economic prospects.
CEO of Agility Africa, Geoffrey White, says: “Much of the world’s perception of Africa is outdated – seven out of ten of the world’s fastest growing economies are in Africa. Too frequently, the world reports only the bad news from the Continent, when there is so much that is impressive that Africa can be proud of. We hope this photo competition will demonstrate some of the positives revealing the real progress and development that Africa is making.”
The competition, open to amateur and professional photographers, will take place from June 1 – September 1. 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. The winning photographs will be shown on a CNBC Africa telecast and published in Forbes Africa.
