Rhino Africa launches new photography competition


Rhino Africa launches new photography competition, Africa’s Photographer of the Year


On January, 2017: Rhino Africa, a leading online safari company, has launched a photography competition called Africa’s Photographer of the Year with a grand prize of a safari for two valued at $25,000. The global competition will span 2017 and has been divided into four categories. The first category focuses on Cape Town and is open from January to March with more categories such as Wild Africa opening later in the year. Aspiring photographers can enter by uploading their photographs on the competition website, africasphotographeroftheyear.com.  

Ryan Rapaport, Rhino Africa’s Creative Director, explained, “We want to showcase Africa in a different way to how we normally do it. We also want to look through the lens of other travellers who have been to Africa and share their perspective. We’re hoping this will lead to a more immersive, authentic and relatable experience. Through that, we hope to spark wanderlust and inspire travel to Africa.”

The competition will highlight and profile key travel destinations in Africa and ultimately celebrate the beauty of Africa. “We’d like to create a platform for an ongoing conversation with our travellers and future travellers about a topic they care about. Ideally, we’d like to uncover images that transcend languages and cultures and portray Africa in a new inspiring light,” Seidemann said.   

The judging panel is made up of six world-leading wildlife photographers and industry experts such as Shannon Wild, Will Burrard-Lucas and Ryan Jack. They will select the quarterly winners as well as the 20 finalists for the grand prize, which will be decided by the public. The luxurious grand prize consists of four days in The Silo Hotel in Cape Town, followed by three days in Royal Malewane in the Kruger National Park, and is topped off with three days at Royal Chundu near Victoria Falls. The quarterly winners will each win compact Swarovski binoculars that offer outstanding optical quality and are perfect for wildlife viewing. Entries can be uploaded on the website and will go into the draw for the grand prize.
