If you have not entered the Snapping Cities competition, why don’t you give it a go! In August, the Mo Ibrahim Foundation launched the “Snapping Cities” photography competition. They have received a range of entries with a wide range of subject and styles, with photographers and members of the public engaging with the ‘African Cities’ topic showcasing interesting and dynamic city challenges through images.
These photographs could be related to areas such as:
• Water and Sanitation
• Population growth and movement
• Informal Settlements
How your city is overcoming these challenges?
These photographs should capture how these challenges are being addressed. Images can answer some of the following questions:
• How has your city progressed over the last few years (housing, water and sanitation etc.)?
• Are there new and interesting solutions (mixed housing development, innovative business solutions, waste treatment solutions, water provision solutions etc.)?
• Are people finding their own innovative ways to address challenges that are not met by local government?
The Mo Ibrahim Foundation has postponed its Annual Governance Weekend in Accra, Ghana to 2015. With this in mind, the “Snapping Cities” competition deadline will be extended to 10 November 2014.
A selection of the best photographs will be displayed at the 2015 Ibrahim Forum on African Cities in Accra, Ghana where they will be seen by prominent African political and business leaders, representatives from civil society, multilateral and regional institutions as well as Africa’s major international partners.
• Winners will be selected for the top three prizes; US$500, US$200, and US$100
• A selection of the best photographs will be displayed in an exhibition at the 2014 Ibrahim forum in Accra, Ghana, in November
• Selected entries will also be displayed on the MIF website
All photographs must be submitted by 5pm on 10 November 2014
Entries will be judged by the MIF secretariat
