Objetivo África: 4th 'Africa Focus' Photography Contest

Las fotografías podrán enviarse desde el 7 de octubre hasta el 9 de diciembre de 2013 a las 14.00 horas (hora peninsular)
IV Concurso Fotográfico 'Objetivo África'

Casa África announces the 4th 'Africa Focus' Photography Contest, which will reward the photographs which best make known the positive aspects of the African continent in relation to water, which is this edition's theme and coincides with the International Year of cooperation in the water field announced by the United Nations.

Photographs should show an optimistic approach in order to break down the stereotypes that have marked the neighbouring continent for a long time. Casa África, as a public consortium that is made up from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, the Spanish Agency of International Development Cooperation (AECID), the Government of the Canary Islands and the Town Council of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, is entrusted with the functions of promoting actions and projects that contribute to better understanding and development of all kinds of relations between societies in Africa, Europe and Spain.

The 4th 'Africa Focus' Photography Contest is looking for photographs that best portray water in all its facets and that enhance the current and positive aspects of the African continent, that side that usually does not appear in traditional media. It hopes to publicise the role that water plays in societies of the neighbouring continent. In this way, images will be accepted that communicate positive concepts related to water: landscapes, sustainable projects that promote its development, sanitation, access to water, agriculture or food, among other aspects.

The invitation to submit photographs will be open from 7th October until 9th December 2013 at 2 p.m. (Spanish mainland time).

Each contestant can take part with a maximum of three (3) photographs. For this, you should send them by email to redes.sociales@casafrica.es. The photographs should be in JPEG or PNG format with an appropriate resolution and size of between 1.5MB and 4 MB. The participant's personal details should be included.

We value the creativity and innovation of the technique used and the way the message is transmitted. The photograph's description and title will also be valued under these criteria.

The jury will be made up from renowned professionals from the field of the arts. Its composition will be communicated once the decision is published and they will meet shortly after the reception period for the photographs ends. The jury's decision will be published on Casa África's website (http://www.casafrica.es) and on the social networks where Casa África is present.

Each image could obtain one of the following prizes:

  1. First prize: 600 €
  2. Second and third prize: 200€ each one
