Congratulations to all the finalists! We felt the 15 images that you will see here stood out from the rest
because of the unique and distinctly African scenes they portray, the way they express the raw
(and often harsh) beauty, vitality and adventure that is to be had on the continent, as well as the
photographer’s artistic ability to recognise the significance of the scene and translate it to the viewer.
On Friday 22 May we will publish the winner in each category. The following Friday 29 May
we will publish the audience favourite (as determined by Facebook likes) as well as the overall winner.
Click below to find out how all the entries stacked up and see a selection of images that didn’t
quite make the cut, but certainly made us smile.
