Call for Submissions: Safal Eye in the Wild Photography Competition
We are excited to announce our annual Safal Eye in the Wild Photography Competition 2023. The competition will run from 28 July to September 15, 2023, with an aim to ignite conversations and raise awareness about environmental conservation through the power of photography.
This year, the competition seeks to highlight the effects of drought on communities and the power of resourcefulness and innovation in combating the scourge. Drought in Africa continues to have dire and severe consequences, particularly for the agriculture-dependent communities in the region. Insufficient rainfall and prolonged dry spells have reduced crop yields, increased livestock losses, and exacerbated food shortages. This in turn, has caused a ripple effect significantly contributing to food insecurity in communities.
Photographers, both professional and amateurs, are invited to participate.
Submission Period: [July 28] – [September 15]
About the Competition: The annual campaign was launched in 2017 under the name ‘MRM Eye in the Wild Photography Competition. It ran for two years before rebranding in 2019 to the Safal Eye in The Wild Photography Competition to reflect the parent sponsor, The Safal Group. The campaign has witnessed tremendous growth and engagement, capturing the attention of participants from Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, and Tanzania.
