HOW TO ENTER

  1. Take some photos …

This is the fun part! You can enter media (photos, video clips or audio files) that shows people working, making things, and doing their jobs across Africa. Think rare and unusual perspectives of both ordinary and extraordinary jobs.

  1. Select the best!

Your media could go onto Wikipedia to illustrate an article. Choose photos and media where the subject matter is clear and in focus. If entering a photo essay, then please name the images sequentially “Mali Female surveyors 1, Mali Female surveyors 2, etc.”
