Deadline: 5th of April, 2024 at midnight (Brussels time)

Applications for the 2024 XIV ‘Goal Africa’ Photography Contest are currently open. Casa África announces the XIV “Africa Objective” Photographic Contest, which will award the images that best reflect the good elements of the African continent in the subject of Biodiversity in Africa, which is this year’s theme.

Objective Africa, which is always interested in learning about the positive aspects of the African continent, focuses in this edition on the environment and biodiversity, in order to contribute to the dissemination of the African natural heritage, which invites us to consider and visualize the richness of this biodiversity and its importance for the continent and the planet. The issue can also be expanded to include climate change and its economic and societal implications from a sustainability standpoint. In addition, the photographs must show an optimistic approach , with the aim of continuing to break down the stereotypes that have traditionally marked the African continent.
