The Mo Ibrahim Foundation is to hold its flagship, high-level Annual Governance Weekend from the 21-23 November 2014 in Accra, Ghana. The focus of the weekend will be the Ibrahim Forum. The theme of the discussions will be “African Cities”.
Projections estimate that Africa will enter its ‘urban age’ by 2035 when 50% of its population will live in urban areas. The 2014 Ibrahim Forum will explore innovation and solutions crucial to unlocking the potential of urban centres to act as engines of sustainable and equitable growth and development.
In the build up to our Forum, MIF is inviting anyone interested in this issue to participate in the “Snapping Cities” photography competition. The “Snapping Cities” provides an opportunity for photographers and members of the public of all abilities and ages, to capture through their own lenses, urban life in Africa. We are seeking images that capture inspiring ways of tackling urban challenges in African cities. These may be of modern innovation or basic adaptation of day-to-day life. The theme is open to personal interpretation but we’re looking for beautiful, inspiring and original photographs.
A selection of the best photographs will be displayed at the 2014 Ibrahim Forum on African Cities in Accra, Ghana, in November 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.
Prizes will be awarded for the top three entries: first prize of US$500, second prize of US$200 and third prize of US$100.
The deadline for all submission is 5pm on 10 October 2014.
