UPPA: Seeking Applications for East African Photography Award 2018

Deadline: 1 August 2018

Ugandan Press Photo Award is seeking applications from the residents of Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Burundi, Rwanda and Ethiopia for its ‘East African Photography Award 2018’. UPPA will accept published and unpublished photographs and the entry is absolutely free.

The EAPA winners and the finalists will be notified by email at their email of record. Winners will be announced at the exhibition opening, on the site and in media releases. The jury will select 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Prizes will be awarded for each place. Winning entries will be printed and will form part of an exhibition.

Only photographs in digital form will be accepted. There should be no watermarks, identifying marks or names of authors written on the photographs. Each photograph has to be saved as highest quality jpg, at 300 dpi, minimum 3000 pixels on the longer side. Photos that have been digitally altered beyond standard optimization will not be accepted.

Only minimal adjustments are allowed. All photographs should include a caption (short description of who, what, where, when, why. Not more than 50 words per photograph. Include when and where the photograph was first published.) in the EXIF data/metadata.

Any noteworthy subjects may be used as a theme for a story entry, but images submitted should show a clear narrative that is improved, not diluted by the inclusion of multiple images.

    Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and Ethiopia.
  • Members of UPPA & Foreign Correspondents’ Association of Uganda, the judging panel and any family members cannot enter the contest.
