Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) Nairobi 2018 Photo Competition for young Africans (USD 500 cash prize)

Application Deadline: August 5th 2018

Degradation affects about 50 million hectares of land in Africa, which now faces perhaps the toughest ecological test of any continent. But African people are rising up to the challenge, finding new ways to work together, adapt and innovate.

This year, the GLF Nairobi 2018 event aims to inspire action around Africa’s degraded landscapes by highlighting successful restoration stories on the ground.

Showing the diversity and complexity of Africa’s landscapes is key to driving this critical conversation and we need you!

Put Africa’s landscapes into the spotlight: be it the savannahs or mountains, wildlife or concrete jungles, human portraits, traditions or innovative restoration or your backyard! All angles are welcome.


  • The competition is open to anyone and everyone, whether you are a photo enthusiast or a professional photographer.


  • To participate, upload your photos here.
  • Upload the photos along with a title, the contributor’s name and a short description of the location and subject, keeping African landscapes in focus.


  • The winner will walk away with a USD 500 cash prize and receive global visibility across digital and social coverage with due credit. We will showcase the winning photos at the GLF Nairobi event, held at the UN Environment campus and attended by policy makers, private sector companies, organizations, press, youth, and community groups.


Submission Deadline: 5 August 2018

Once applications are closed, online voting will be open between 8-15 August 2018.
Winner and runner-ups to be announced on 21 August 2018.
