Welcome to the Journey

Africa’s Photographer of the Year is the most prestigious photography competition in the continent. It was created to inspire travel to Africa and showcase the continent’s incomparable beauty. Drawing on entries from around the world and focusing on the iconic destinations, the competition celebrates the beauty of Africa's wildlife, landscapes and people.

Africa’s Photographer of the Year is the biggest photography competition of its kind with the grand prize an ultra-luxurious African safari valued at $25,000. The worldwide competition is brought to you by Rhino Africa in association with other leading brands.

The year-long competition is split into four quarterly themes and will focus on Cape Town, The Big 5, Africa Through My Lens and Wild Africa. Once one theme closes, another will open, each with a duration of three months. Judges will select quarterly winners who will then go into a public vote to decide who wins the grand prize of a once-in-a-lifetime 10-day holiday for two. Don’t wait around for your dream trip to Africa, enter now and stand a chance to make it a reality.
