Young Photographer Award 2021

The Young Photographer Award is an educational award geared towards passionate emerging photographers looking to cultivate a career in documentary photography or photojournalism. The winner of the competition receives a DSLR camera and, together with the runners-up, gets an opportunity to participate in an intensive Mentorship Programme. The programme is designed to give young photographers a chance to learn more about photography with our bootcamp course as well as developing a documentary photography project under the guidance of an industry professional. The photographic outcomes of the mentees are exhibited in Kampala.
