My Africa 800T650

To celebrate 10 years of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation (MIF), the MIF is producing a photo book titled My Africa, looking forward to the next 10 years and capturing Africans’ visions of the future of the continent.

My Africa photo competition is an opportunity for African people of all ages and abilities to submit to us an image which, for them, best illustrates what they feel will shape the continent over the next 10 years. The Mo Ibrahim Foundation (MIF) is seeking images that capture Africa in its many diverse settings and communities, depicting the developments, challenges and opportunities that could potentially characterise the next decade. The theme is open to each person’s interpretation but MIF is looking for beautiful, inspiring and original photographs. They invite everyone.

Grab your cameras!

How to enter

To submit an entry, visit MIF website, upload your photo, and fill in the online form. All photographs must be submitted by 17:00 BST on Friday, 3 June 2016. Entries will be judged by the Mo Ibrahim Foundation team and the winners announced on our website and social media channels. A selection of the best photographs will be displayed in an exhibition at the 10 year celebration, and selected entries will also be displayed on the Mo Ibrahim Foundation website.
