NOW OPEN: February - March
Capture the essence and spirit of Africa. We want to see the vibrant colours of Africa, the far-reaching plains of the Serengeti or the twinkle of Cape Town city at night, we want to see your vision, through your lens. Capture prowling leopards, predators and prey sharing precious water or humble dung beetles trudging through the sand. Pearly beaches to the beads adorning Maasai warriors, what do you see as Africa?
