RISE Africa photography competition 2023: The Cities We Want
The RISE Africa Annual Photography and Multimedia Showcase encourages imaginative and novel thinking to collectively envision the futures of African cities. It aims to promote citizen photography and grassroots storytelling, as well as curated photo-journalism, as a way to excite and encourage citizens and decision makers about their homes. The resulting multimedia entries will be used to elicit ideas from city officials, urbanists, decision-makers, private sector and civil society who will explore and engage with the exhibition through a number of workshops. These annual photography showcases intend to produce realistic, novel and positive demonstrations of Africa which are curated from within.
The 2023 theme was to share your vision of The Cities We Want — echoing our rich urban past, grounded in the realities of the present and looking towards the possibilities of the future.
