Agility 2016 Africa Photo Competition

Capture modern Africa


The story of today’s Africa – young, growing, urbanizing and tech-savvy – needs to be told. Agility, a logistics company committed to African growth and development, wants to help tell it. The Agility 2016 Africa Photo Competition is an invitation to professional and amateur photographers to capture images showcasing the new African reality of fast-growing cities and businesses driven by creativity and technology.

The creative community are a vital part of the next generation of digitally-connected talent that will see Africa achieve its full potential.

The continents’ deficits in industry, technology and cities are transforming every day as the global gaze fixes on the continent. As photographers you have the tools to tell a visual story to keep closing these gaps, as well as showcasing the importance of creative thinking in bringing about change.

Your photographs can capture the hope, aspiration and confidence of a new generation and the continent they are rapidly reshaping. Images that can rally decision-makers and influential minds for Africa to achieve its full potential.

Join the 2016 Agility Africa Photo Competition and show your peers and the world why investing in the future leadership of Africa is worthwhile.
