Call for submissions
The call for entries to the Contemporary African Photography Prize 2018 is open until 7 February 2018. Photographers are invited to enter their work engaging with the African continent or its diaspora for a chance to win a series of large scale outdoor exhibitions around the globe. Submissions will be reviewed by 25 international curators, publishers, editors and artists. 25 artists will be shortlisted out of which five will be awarded the CAP Prize 2018.
The CAP Prize consists of global exposure at major international photography exhibitions and is awarded during the Image Afrique Festival in Basel, Switzerland. The CAP Prize winners exhibition was previously on show at LagosPhoto Festival in Nigeria, at FIFCV Festival Internacional de Fotografia de Cabo Verde or Eyes On – European Month of Photography in Vienna just to name a few. The five CAP Prize winners are invited to the main exhibition at Image Afrique Festival and will spend one week in Basel during Art Basel, all costs covered. A catalogue documenting the five winners works will be published to coincide with the award ceremony.
