The best ten-day safari in Africa. That’s what we endeavoured to create with the grand prize for Africa’s Photographer of the Year. Valued at $25,000, the holiday will whisk you and a very lucky friend to Cape Town, the Kruger National Park and Victoria Falls – staying at some of the most luxurious properties in Africa. All for one of your photos that you may have already taken!

Africa’s Photographer of the Year features four unique themes for each quarter of 2017: Cape Town, the Kruger National Park, Victoria Falls and Wild Africa. If you’ve ogled at Table Mountain, felt the spray of Victoria Falls or crossed paths with Africa’s majestic wildlife then we want your photos!
