Celebrate Africa Winners

News

03 May 2017

Posted by Gemma Suyat

Our #CelebrateAfrica competition in partnership with Canon and New African encouraged African residents from all walks of life to share their best images that challenged stereotypes ― documenting modern stories that went beyond the hoary cliches.

Image categories open for submission were: “People”, “Nature” and “City Life”, and we received an impressive 2,790 on-the-ground, high quality images from a range of African photographers. The results have been truly remarkable and the judging process has been an absolute joy for all parties.

The winner was announced at Canon’s event in Nigeria earlier today. The grand prize was awarded to Brian Otieno and his stunning photo of film-maker, photographer and model for his self-styled colourful and vintage fashion, Stephen Okoth, taken in the Kibera district of Nairobi. 36 additional winners were also selected which you can view in all their glory below.

"He [Stephen Okoth] inspires a generation in the shanty town through his sense of style, which brings hope to the people,” commented Brian, who wins a trip to an African country for his bold contribution.

A massive thank you to everyone who entered and played their part in helping us to Celebrate the beauty that is Africa. From the photographer and their camera, through Picfair’s marketplace, to the pages of international publications, the campaign has traced the full life cycle of an image ― something Picfair are extremely proud to have helped facilitate. Journey through Africa with more of the winning images below.
