The Uganda Press Photo Award (UPPA) invites all Ugandan photojournalists and photographers to participate in the 8th annual photography competition. The winner will take home a professional camera, the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, which will come with an EF 24-70mm lens, as well as the opportunity to showcase their work in our annual exhibition which features some of the best visual storytellers Uganda has to offer. Prizes will also be awarded in all other categories.
Participants can submit their images (published or unpublished) to six varied categories: News, Daily Life, Environment, People, Sports & Urban.
Over the past seven years the UPPA has endeavored to not only celebrate Ugandan photojournalism but also to create a platform where Ugandan photographers can connect with other professionals, locally and internationally, as well as exchange and learn varied photography styles and perspectives through different programmes.
Note: All submissions must be done online on UPPA’s website. Guidelines and terms and conditions can be found here as well.
Deadline for submissions is August 1st, 2019.
The UPPA is organised with support from Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Uganda and Canon Central and North Africa and other sponsors.
